Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2937-1
March 21, 2016

webkitgtk vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 15.10
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in WebKitGTK+.

Software Description:
- webkitgtk: Web content engine library for GTK+


A large number of security issues were discovered in the WebKitGTK+ Web and
JavaScript engines. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious
website, a remote attacker could exploit a variety of issues related to web
browser security, including cross-site scripting attacks, denial of service
attacks, and arbitrary code execution.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 15.10:
  libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-0      2.4.10-0ubuntu0.15.10.1
  libjavascriptcoregtk-3.0-0      2.4.10-0ubuntu0.15.10.1
  libwebkitgtk-1.0-0              2.4.10-0ubuntu0.15.10.1
  libwebkitgtk-3.0-0              2.4.10-0ubuntu0.15.10.1

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-0      2.4.10-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
  libjavascriptcoregtk-3.0-0      2.4.10-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
  libwebkitgtk-1.0-0              2.4.10-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
  libwebkitgtk-3.0-0              2.4.10-0ubuntu0.14.04.1

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart any applications
that use WebKitGTK+, such as Epiphany and Evolution, to make all the
necessary changes.
