    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the Chromium browser.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
      
    CVE-2011-1108
    
      Google Chrome before 9.0.597.107 does not properly implement JavaScript
      dialogs, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
      (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted
      HTML document.
    
    
    CVE-2011-1109
    
      Google Chrome before 9.0.597.107 does not properly process nodes in Cascading
      Style Sheets (CSS) stylesheets, 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-2011-1113
    
      Google Chrome before 9.0.597.107 on 64-bit Linux platforms does not properly
      perform pickle deserialization, which allows remote attackers to cause a
      denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via unspecified vectors.
    
    
    CVE-2011-1114
    
      Google Chrome before 9.0.597.107 does not properly handle tables, which allows
      remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified
      other impact via unknown vectors that lead to a "stale node."
    
    
    CVE-2011-1115
    
      Google Chrome before 9.0.597.107 does not properly render tables, 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-2011-1121
    
      Integer overflow in Google Chrome before 9.0.597.107 allows remote attackers
      to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via
      vectors involving a TEXTAREA element.
    
    
    CVE-2011-1122
    
      The WebGL implementation in Google Chrome before 9.0.597.107 allows remote
      attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via unspecified
      vectors, aka Issue 71960.
