New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update addresses the following vulnerabilities :

- [CVE-2017-2350](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2350), [CVE-2017-2354](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2354), [CVE-2017-2355](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2355), [CVE-2017-2356](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2356), [CVE-2017-2362](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2362), [CVE-2017-2363](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2363), [CVE-2017-2364](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2364), [CVE-2017-2365](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2365), [CVE-2017-2366](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2366), [CVE-2017-2369](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2369), [CVE-2017-2371](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2371), [CVE-2017-2373](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cg i?name=CVE-2017-2373)

Additional fixes :

- Make accelerating compositing mode on-demand again. By default it will only be used for websites that require it, saving a lot of memory on websites that don’t need it.

- Release unused UpdateAtlas and reduce the tile coverage on memory pressure.

- The media backend now stores preloaded media in /var/tmp instead of user cache dir.

- Make inspector work again when accelerated compositing support is disabled.

- Fix a deadlock when the media player is destroyed.

- Fix network process crashes when loading custom URI schemes.

- Fix overlay scrollbars that are over a subframe.

- Fix a crash in GraphicsContext3D::drawArrays when using OpenGL 3.2 core profile.

- Fix BadDamage X errors happening when resizing the WebView.

- Fix several crashes and rendering issues.

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

Solution

Update the affected webkitgtk4 package.
