Description

Updated chromium-browser packages that fix multiple security issues and one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Supplementary.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

Chromium is an open source web browser, powered by WebKit (Blink).

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Chromium to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Chromium. (CVE-2015-1243, CVE-2015-1250)

This update also fixes the following bug :

  • Prior to this update, Chromium did not accept GNOME

This update also fixes the following bug :

* Prior to this update, Chromium did not accept GNOME's system proxy
settings due to having GConf support disabled. This issue has been
resolved in this update. (BZ#1217065)

All Chromium users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain Chromium version 42.0.2311.135, which corrects these issues.
After installing the update, Chromium must be restarted for the
changes to take effect."
