<p>Chromium is an open-source web browser project. V8 is Google's open
source JavaScript engine.
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Chromium and V8. Please
review the CVE identifiers and release notes referenced below for
<impact type="high">
<p>A local attacker could gain root privileges (CVE-2011-1444, fixed in
<p>A context-dependent attacker could entice a user to open a specially
crafted web site or JavaScript program using Chromium or V8, possibly
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process, or a Denial of Service condition. The attacker also could obtain
cookies and other sensitive information, conduct man-in-the-middle
attacks, perform address bar spoofing, bypass the same origin policy,
perform Cross-Site Scripting attacks, or bypass pop-up blocks.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All Chromium users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
<p>All V8 users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=dev-lang/v8-"
