Title: Chromium: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201012-01)
Date: December 17, 2010
Bug(s): #325451, #326717, #330003, #333559, #335750, #338204, #341797, #344201, #347625, #348651
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Chromium, some of which may
allow user-assisted execution of arbitrary code.
Chromium is an open-source web browser project.
Vulnerable: < 8.0.552.224
Unaffected: >= 8.0.552.224
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities were found in Chromium. For further
information please consult the release notes referenced below.
A remote attacker could trick a user to perform a set of UI actions
that trigger a possibly exploitable crash, leading to execution of
arbitrary code or a Denial of Service.
It was also possible for an attacker to entice a user to visit a
specially-crafted web page that would trigger one of the
vulnerabilities, leading to execution of arbitrary code within the
confines of the sandbox, successful Cross-Site Scripting attacks,
violation of the same-origin policy, successful website spoofing
attacks, information leak, or a Denial of Service. An attacker could
also trick a user to perform a set of UI actions that might result in a
successful website spoofing attack.
Multiple bugs in the sandbox could result in a sandbox escape.
Multiple UI bugs could lead to information leak and successful website
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Chromium users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/chromium-8.0.552.224"
