Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Chromium: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201202-01)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: February 18, 2012
Bug(s): #402841, #404067
ID: 201202-01

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: < 17.0.963.56
Unaffected: >= 17.0.963.56
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,
information leak (clipboard contents), bypass of the Same Origin Policy,
or escape from NativeClient's sandbox.
A remote attacker could also entice the user to perform a set of UI
actions (drag and drop) to trigger an URL bar spoofing vulnerability.


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-17.0.963.56"
