    oxide-qt vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 15.04
    - 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:
    
    An issue was discovered in the HTML parser in Blink. If a user were
    tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could
    potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions.
    (CVE-2015-1235)
    
    An issue was discovered in the Web Audio API implementation in Blink. If
    a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker
    could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions.
    (CVE-2015-1236)
    
    A use-after-free was discovered in Chromium. 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-2015-1237)
    
    An out-of-bounds write 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 application crash or execute
    arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
    (CVE-2015-1238)
    
    An out-of-bounds read was discovered in the WebGL 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. (CVE-2015-1240)
    
    An issue was discovered with the interaction of page navigation and touch
    event handling. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted
    website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct
    "tap jacking" attacks. (CVE-2015-1241)
    
    A type confusion bug 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-2015-1242)
    
    It was discovered that websocket connections were not upgraded whenever a
    HSTS policy is active. A remote attacker could potentially exploit this
    to conduct a man in the middle (MITM) attack. (CVE-2015-1244)
    
    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-2015-1246)
    
    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-2015-1249)
    
    A use-after-free was discovered in the file picker 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-2015-1321)
    
    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-2015-3333)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 15.04:
      liboxideqtcore0                 1.6.5-0ubuntu0.15.04.1
      oxideqt-codecs                  1.6.5-0ubuntu0.15.04.1
      oxideqt-codecs-extra            1.6.5-0ubuntu0.15.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 14.10:
      liboxideqtcore0                 1.6.5-0ubuntu0.14.10.1
      oxideqt-codecs                  1.6.5-0ubuntu0.14.10.1
      oxideqt-codecs-extra            1.6.5-0ubuntu0.14.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      liboxideqtcore0                 1.6.5-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
      oxideqt-codecs                  1.6.5-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
      oxideqt-codecs-extra            1.6.5-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
