Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Chromium, V8: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201111-05)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 19, 2011
Bug(s): #390113, #390779
ID: 201111-05

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Chromium and V8,
some of which may allow execution of arbitrary code.


Background

Chromium is an open-source web browser project. V8 is Google's open
source JavaScript engine.


Affected Packages

Package: www-client/chromium
Vulnerable: < 15.0.874.121
Unaffected: >= 15.0.874.121
Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: dev-lang/v8
Vulnerable: < 3.5.10.24
Unaffected: >= 3.5.10.24
Architectures: All supported architectures


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 also could cause
a Java applet to run without user confirmation.


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-15.0.874.121"
   
All V8 users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/v8-3.5.10.24"
