Comment 4 Yury German Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2014-07-18 16:43:28 UTC

Setting it back to cleanup. 
chromium-36.0.1985.67 is still in tree, and it is not masked (only chromium-37* is masked). Since it is vulnerable it would have to be removed as well.  

If there are reasons why it still needs to be in the tree, please advise.

Thank you!

I was going by ago's commit message. It looks like he missed it.

I'm working on another version bump right now, but I'll clean it up once that's done.

CVE-2014-3162 (
  Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Google Chrome before 36.0.1985.125
  allow attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have other impact
  via unknown vectors.

CVE-2014-3160 (
  The ResourceFetcher::canRequest function in core/fetch/ResourceFetcher.cpp
  in Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 36.0.1985.125, does not properly
  restrict subresource requests associated with SVG files, which allows remote
  attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via a crafted file.
