Description

USN-3781-1 fixed vulnerabilities in WebKitGTK+. The updated package was missing some header files, preventing certain applications from building. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

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.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-libjavascriptcoregtk-4-0-18
  • ubuntu-upgrade-libwebkit2gtk-4-0-37

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
