February 12, 2024

webkit2gtk vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 23.10
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in WebKitGTK.

Software Description:
- webkit2gtk: Web content engine library for GTK+


Several 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.

fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart any applications
that use WebKitGTK, such as Epiphany, to make all the necessary changes.
