Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Chromium, some of which
may allow execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

Chromium is an open source web browser project.

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

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-client/chromium       < 17.0.963.56           >= 17.0.963.56

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

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

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted web
site using Chromium, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the process, a Denial of Service condition,
information leak (clipboard contents), bypass of the Same Origin
Policy, or escape from NativeClient's sandbox.

A remote attacker could also entice the user to perform a set of UI
actions (drag and drop) to trigger an URL bar spoofing vulnerability.

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-17.0.963.56"
