Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Chromium and V8, worst
of which may allow execution of arbitrary code.

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      < 33.0.1750.146        >= 33.0.1750.146 
  2  dev-lang/v8                < 3.20.17.13               Vulnerable!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     NOTE: Certain packages are still vulnerable. Users should migrate
           to another package if one is available or wait for the
           existing packages to be marked stable by their
           architecture maintainers.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     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 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. Furthermore, a remote
attacker may be able to bypass security restrictions or have other
unspecified impact.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All chromium users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/chromium-33.0.1750.146"

Gentoo has discontinued support for separate V8 package. We recommend
that users unmerge V8:

  # emerge --unmerge "dev-lang/v8"
