Synopsis

Background

source JavaScript engine.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Chromium and V8. Please
review the CVE identifiers and release notes referenced below for
details.


Impact

A context-dependent attacker could entice a user to open a specially
crafted web site or JavaScript program using Chromium or V8, possibly
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process, or a Denial of Service condition.
The attacker could also perform URL bar spoofing.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/chromium-16.0.912.75"
