Hate to be the bearer of bad news :shock: . But figured it might be worth a mention

Chromium: Multiple vulnerabilities — GLSA 201612-11

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in the Chromium web browser, the worst of which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.



From https://security.gentoo.org/glsa/201612-11

I have so many installs. I will have to go through my boxes and check, because I think I have it running on something. Because I show on this laptop that it is not installed on as

Code:
[email protected]:~
$ apt-cache policy chromium
chromium:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 53.0.2785.143-1~deb8u1
  Version table:
     53.0.2785.143-1~deb8u1 0
        500 http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates/main i386 Packages
     53.0.2785.89-1~deb8u1 0
        500 http://ftp.gr.debian.org/debian/ jessie/main i386 Packages
[email protected]:~



My sources list is

Code:
[email protected]:~
$ inxi -r
Repos:     Active apt sources in file: etc/apt/sources.list.d/antix.list
           deb http://antix.daveserver.info/jessie jessie main nosystemd
           Active apt sources in file: etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list
           deb http://ftp.gr.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
           deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free



Just a heads up. Not sure yet how it effects MXlinux. I am not on that box presently.

I pretty much signed up to make this comment... They have a libre version of Chromium now called Iridium Browser. However to my knowledge it is only supported for 64-bit systems. Download it here

(also hooray for 666 views lol)

I'm not a chromium user, but found these interesting to skim/read:

"Differences between Iridium and Chromium"
https://github.com/iridium-browser/trac ... d-Chromium

"Modifications to Google Chromium for removing Google integration and enhancing privacy, control, and transparency"
(incorporates "inox-patchset" and iridium patchset)

I wish I didn't have to use Chrome-based browsers, but it seems like the only ones that let me watch Youtube vids in every resolution are either Chrome of Firefox based. I used Vivaldi browser for quite a while but got tired of it's non-freedom, especially since it's based on Chromium which is already questionable based on what your link and Iridium themselves have said. There are a lot of horrible Linux web browsers lol... such as Midori, Epiphany "Web" (we're so impressed), qupzilla, konqueror... None of them play Youtube videos in every resolution, though they certainly are libre! Just not useful is all :|
