    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the Chromium browser.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
    CVE-2011-0779
    
      Google Chrome before 9.0.597.84 does not properly handle a missing key in an
      extension, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
      (application crash) via a crafted extension.
    
    CVE-2011-1290
    
      Integer overflow in WebKit allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
      via unknown vectors, as demonstrated by Vincenzo Iozzo, Willem Pinckaers, and
      Ralf-Philipp Weinmann during a Pwn2Own competition at CanSecWest 2011.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 6.0.472.63~r59945-5+squeeze4
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed
    version 10.0.648.133~r77742-1
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your chromium-browser packages.
