    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the Chromium browser.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
    
    CVE-2011-0777
    
      Use-after-free vulnerability in Google Chrome before 9.0.597.84 allows remote
      attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other
      impact via vectors related to image loading
    
    
    CVE-2011-0778
    
      Google Chrome before 9.0.597.84 does not properly restrict drag and drop
      operations, which might allow remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin
      Policy via unspecified vectors
    
    
    CVE-2011-0783
    
      Unspecified vulnerability in Google Chrome before 9.0.597.84 allows
      user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service
      (application crash) via vectors involving a "bad volume setting."
    
    
    CVE-2011-0983
    
      Google Chrome before 9.0.597.94 does not properly handle anonymous blocks,
      which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have
      unspecified other impact via unknown vectors that lead to a "stale pointer."
    
    
    CVE-2011-0981
    
      Google Chrome before 9.0.597.94 does not properly perform event handling for
      animations, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or 
      possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors that lead to a
      "stale pointer."
    
    
    CVE-2011-0984
    
      Google Chrome before 9.0.597.94 does not properly handle plug-ins, which
      allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read)
      via unspecified vectors
    
    
    CVE-2011-0985
    
      Google Chrome before 9.0.597.94 does not properly perform process termination
      upon memory exhaustion, which has unspecified impact and remote attack vectors.
    
    
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 6.0.472.63~r59945-5+squeeze2
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed
    in version 9.0.597.98~r74359-1
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your chromium-browser packages.
