Update your Chromium to 93.0.4577.82

Today, I uploaded a set of Chromium 93.0.4577.82 packages for Slackware 14.2 and -current (32-bit as well as 64-bit).

According to yesterday’s official announcement on the Google blog, this release patches a number of vulnerabilites and two of them are zero-day vulnerabilities that are actively being exploited online.

The advice is to upgrade Chromium on your Slackware 14.2 and -current computers as soon as possible.

The ungoogled-chromium sources are lagging behind as usual, but I have hopes that a new source tarball will appear soon, now that we have a Chromium update which addresses multiple zero-days. Eloston, the project maintainer, seems AWOL but several contributors have a working patch set ready.

Stay safe! Eric

  2. The x86 version of chromium 93.0.4577.82 package does not work.
    It crashes immediately on startup:

    Thanks, david


    1. You should subscribe to the RSS feed of my package ChangeLog. It’s even shown on the every page of this blog, in a WordPress widget half-way the right column.
      The changelog for Chromium reads (and has been reading like this since version 90):

      The 32bit package of Chromium 93.x still crashes on 14.2 and -current,
      unless you add ‘–disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox’ as startup parameter.



  3. Hi Eric, thanks for the work.
    I just tried installing this package on fresh slack14.2-64 on virtualbox. But when I run the chromium it crashes immediately:

    Got any pointers on how to solve this?
    Thanks again.


    1. You should keep your Slackware 14.2 up-to-date with the available patches. For Slackware 14.2, the latest mozilla-nss package has version 3.40.1. My guess is that you still have the original 3.23.
      I compile my packages against a fully patched Slackware 14.2.


      1. I see.
        Yes, it’s a freshly installed unpatched Slackware. Just one `slackpkg update` and `slackpkg upgrade-all` command does the trick.

        Thank you!



  4. Hi Eric. I upgrade the x86_64 package and the audio is gone…
