Background

Chromium is an open-source web browser project. V8 is Google’s open 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 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:

 # emerge --sync
 # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
 ">=www-client/chromium-15.0.874.121"

All V8 users should upgrade to the latest version:

 # emerge --sync
 # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/v8-3.5.10.24"
