Description

The FilePath::ReferencesParent function in files/file_path.cc in Google Chrome before 29.0.1547.57 on Windows does not properly handle pathname components composed entirely of . (dot) and whitespace characters, which allows remote attackers to conduct directory traversal attacks via a crafted directory name.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-dev-lang-v8
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-www-client-chromium
