Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 15.10 : oxide-qt vulnerability (USN-2905-1)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 88929


The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.


A security issue was discovered in Chromium. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions or a sandbox protection mechanism. (CVE-2016-1629).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected liboxideqtcore0 package.
