Medium Nessus Plugin ID 91498

Synopsis

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

Description

An unspecified security issue was discovered in Blink. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions.
(CVE-2016-1673)

An issue was discovered with Document reattachment in Blink in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions. (CVE-2016-1675)

A type confusion bug was discovered in V8. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2016-1677)

A heap overflow was discovered in V8. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1678)

A use-after-free was discovered in the V8ValueConverter implementation in Chromium in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1679)

A use-after-free was discovered in Skia. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1680)

A security issue was discovered in ServiceWorker registration in Blink in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass Content Security Policy (CSP) protections. (CVE-2016-1682)

An out-of-bounds memory access was discovered in libxslt. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1683)

An integer overflow was discovered in libxslt. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service (application crash or resource consumption). (CVE-2016-1684)

An out-of-bounds read was discovered in the regular expression implementation in V8. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service (application crash). (CVE-2016-1688)

A heap overflow was discovered in Chromium. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1689)

A heap overflow was discovered in Skia. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1691)

It was discovered that Blink permits cross-origin loading of stylesheets by a service worker even when the stylesheet download has an incorrect MIME type. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions. (CVE-2016-1692)

Multiple security issues were discovered in Chromium. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to read uninitialized memory, cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2016-1695, CVE-2016-1703)

It was discovered that Blink does not prevent frame navigation during DocumentLoader detach operations. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions. (CVE-2016-1697)

A parameter sanitization bug was discovered in the devtools subsystem in Blink. An attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass intended access restrictions. (CVE-2016-1699)

An out-of-bounds read was discovered in Skia. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service (application crash). (CVE-2016-1702).

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.
