Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Oxide.

Software Description:
- oxide-qt: Web browser engine for Qt (QML plugin)

Details:

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Chromium. If a user were
tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could
potentially exploit these to obtain sensitive information, spoof
application UI by causing the security status API or webview URL to
indicate the wrong values, bypass security restrictions, cause a denial
of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code.
