Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Chromium and V8, some of
which may allow execution of arbitrary code and local root privilege
escalation.

Background
==========

Chromium is an open-source web browser project. V8 is Google's open
source JavaScript engine.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 www-client/chromium < 15.0.874.102 >= 15.0.874.102
2 dev-lang/v8 < 3.5.10.22 >= 3.5.10.22
-------------------------------------------------------------------
2 affected packages
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Chromium and V8.
Please review the CVE identifiers and release notes referenced below
for details.

Impact
======

A local attacker could gain root privileges (CVE-2011-1444, fixed in
chromium-11.0.696.57).

A context-dependent attacker could entice a user to open a specially
crafted web site or JavaScript program using Chromium or V8, possibly
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process, or a Denial of Service condition. The attacker also could
obtain cookies and other sensitive information, conduct
man-in-the-middle attacks, perform address bar spoofing, bypass the
same origin policy, perform Cross-Site Scripting attacks, or bypass
pop-up blocks.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Chromium users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=www-client/chromium-15.0.874.102"

All V8 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/v8-3.5.10.22"
