USN-3015-1: Oxide vulnerabilities

30 June 2016

Several security issues were fixed in Oxide.



  • oxide-qt - Web browser engine for Qt (QML plugin)


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.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 16.04
Ubuntu 15.10
Ubuntu 14.04

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