    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in Oxide.
    
    Software Description:
    - oxide-qt: Web browser engine for Qt (QML plugin)
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that a long running unload handler could cause an
    incognito profile to be reused in some circumstances. If a user were
    tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could
    potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2016-1586)
    
    Multiple security vulnerabilities were discovered in Chromium. If a user
    were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could
    potentially exploit these to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks,
    spoof an application's URL bar, obtain sensitive information, cause a
    denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code.
    (CVE-2016-5181, CVE-2016-5182, CVE-2016-5185, CVE-2016-5186,
    CVE-2016-5187, CVE-2016-5188, CVE-2016-5189, CVE-2016-5192, CVE-2016-5194)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
