Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in WebkitGTK+. Please review the references below for details.
A remote attacker could execute arbitrary code, cause a Denial of Service condition, bypass intended memory-read restrictions, conduct a timing side-channel attack to bypass the Same Origin Policy, obtain sensitive information, or spoof the address bar.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All WebKitGTK+ users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.16.6"
