Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Chromium: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201203-19)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: March 25, 2012
Bug(s): #406975, #407465, #407755, #409251
ID: 201203-19

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Chromium, some of
which may allow execution of arbitrary code.


Background

Chromium is an open source web browser project.

Affected Packages

Package: www-client/chromium
Vulnerable: < 17.0.963.83
Unaffected: >= 17.0.963.83
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Chromium. Please review
the CVE identifiers and release notes referenced below for details.


Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted web
site using Chromium, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the process, a Denial of Service condition,
Universal Cross-Site Scripting, or installation of an extension without
user interaction.
A remote attacker could also entice a user to install a specially
crafted extension that would interfere with browser-issued web requests.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Chromium users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/chromium-17.0.963.83"
