Description Murray McAllister 2014-10-09 04:23:59 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2014-3195 to
the following vulnerability:

Name: CVE-2014-3195
URL: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-3195
Assigned: 20140503
Reference: http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/2014/10/stable-channel-update.html
Reference: https://code.google.com/p/v8/source/detail?r=23144

Reference: https://crbug.com/403409

Google V8, as used in Google Chrome before 38.0.2125.101, does not
properly track JavaScript heap-memory allocations as allocations of
uninitialized memory and does not properly concatenate arrays of
double-precision floating-point numbers, which allows remote attackers
to obtain sensitive information via crafted JavaScript code, related
to the PagedSpace::AllocateRaw and NewSpace::AllocateRaw functions in
heap/spaces-inl.h, the LargeObjectSpace::AllocateRaw function in
heap/spaces.cc, and the Runtime_ArrayConcat function in runtime.cc.

From an initial inspection, it is not clear if the Fedora v8 packages are affected or not.

Comment 5 Yadnyawalk Tale 2020-08-04 10:36:57 UTC

At this time, we have no additional z-streams planned for sat-6.5.z. Based upon that and that this is a low severity issue, closing this one as wontfix.
