Name        : v8
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 3.14.5.10
Release     : 2.fc19
URL         : http://code.google.com/p/v8
Summary     : JavaScript Engine
Description :
V8 is Google's open source JavaScript engine. V8 is written in C++ and is
used
in Google Chrome, the open source browser from Google. V8 implements
ECMAScript
as specified in ECMA-262, 3rd edition.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update fixes an issue with Google V8, as used in Google Chrome before
28.0.1500.95, which allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified
other impact via vectors that leverage "type confusion."

Please note that this issue's impact on Node.js is somewhat lessened since
it
does not typically execute JavaScript from foreign sources.
