========================================================================== Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2476-1 January 26, 2015

oxide-qt vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

  • Ubuntu 14.10
  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Oxide.

Software Description: - oxide-qt: Web browser engine library for Qt (QML plugin)

Details:

Several memory corruption bugs were discovered in ICU. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service via renderer crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2014-7923, CVE-2014-7926)

A use-after-free was discovered in the IndexedDB implementation. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2014-7924)

A use-after free was discovered in the WebAudio implementation in Blink. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2014-7925)

Several memory corruption bugs were discovered in V8. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service via renderer crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2014-7927, CVE-2014-7928, CVE-2014-7931)

Several use-after free bugs were discovered in the DOM implementation in Blink. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service via renderer crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2014-7929, CVE-2014-7930, CVE-2014-7932, CVE-2014-7934)

A use-after free was discovered in FFmpeg. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2014-7933)

Multiple off-by-one errors were discovered in FFmpeg. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2014-7937)

A memory corruption bug was discovered in the fonts implementation. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2014-7938)

It was discovered that ICU did not initialize memory for a data structure correctly. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2014-7940)

It was discovered that the fonts implementation did not initialize memory for a data structure correctly. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2014-7942)

An out-of-bounds read was discovered in Skia. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash. (CVE-2014-7943)

An out-of-bounds read was discovered in Blink. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash. (CVE-2014-7946)

It was discovered that the AppCache proceeded with caching for SSL sessions even if there is a certificate error. A remote attacker could potentially exploit this by conducting a MITM attack to modify HTML application content. (CVE-2014-7948)

Multiple security issues were discovered in Chromium. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to read uninitialized memory, cause a denial of service via application crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2015-1205)

Multiple security issues were discovered in V8. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to read uninitialized memory, cause a denial of service via renderer crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2015-1346)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 14.10: liboxideqtcore0 1.4.2-0ubuntu0.14.10.1 oxideqt-codecs 1.4.2-0ubuntu0.14.10.1 oxideqt-codecs-extra 1.4.2-0ubuntu0.14.10.1

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS: liboxideqtcore0 1.4.2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1 oxideqt-codecs 1.4.2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1 oxideqt-codecs-extra 1.4.2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
