My thoughts on Slackware, life and everything

Chromium 117.0.5938.132 fixes zero-day exploit

Just yesterday I uploaded my  packages for chromium and chromium-ungoogled to 117.0.5938.92. Only to discover right before heading to bed that there’s a new security update available… Chromium 117.0.5938.132 fixes a zero-day vulnerability in libvpx (CVE-2023-5217) which is already actively exploited to install spyware on computers.

The chromium packages for 117.0.5938.132 are already available in my repository. The chromium-ungoogled packages are currently compiling and will become available in the evening (CET timezone) i.e. later today.
It’s highly recommended to upgrade to my latest chromium and chromium-ungoogled packages.

Find the updated Slackware 15.0 and -current packages both for chromium and chromium-ungoogled in my repository and its mirrors (like my own US server and in a short while, the UK mirror).

Cheers, Eric

    Google has kept you even busier than usual with Chromium updates lately. That’s two critical issues in about a week, if I haven’t fallen behind. Thanks for the extra effort to keep up with them this week.

      Yes it is really annoying as hell and quite time-consuming.
