    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - 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:
    
    A use-after-free was discovered in the SVG 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-2014-3168)
    
    A use-after-free was discovered in the DOM 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-2014-3169)
    
    A use-after-free was discovered in V8. 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-2014-3171)
    
    It was discovered that WebGL clear calls did not interact properly with
    the state of a draw buffer. If a user were tricked in to opening a
    specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to
    cause a denial of service. (CVE-2014-3173)
    
    A threading issue was discovered in the Web Audio API during attempts to
    update biquad filter coefficients. If a user were tricked in to opening a
    specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to
    cause a denial of service. (CVE-2014-3174)
    
    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-2014-3175)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      liboxideqtcore0                 1.1.2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
      oxideqt-codecs                  1.1.2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
      oxideqt-codecs-extra            1.1.2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
