    CVE-2011-1292
    
      Use-after-free vulnerability in the frame-loader implementation in Google
      Chrome allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly
      have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors.
    
    
    CVE-2011-1293
    
      Use-after-free vulnerability in the HTMLCollection implementation in Google
      Chrome allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have
      unspecified other impact via unknown vectors.
    
    
    CVE-2011-1440
    
      Use-after-free vulnerability in Google Chrome allows remote attackers to cause
      a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors
      related to the ruby element and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) token sequences.
    
    
    CVE-2011-1444
    
      Race condition in the sandbox launcher implementation in Google Chrome on
      Linux allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have
      unspecified other impact via unknown vectors.
    
    
    CVE-2011-1797
    
      Google Chrome 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-2011-1799
    
      Google Chrome does not properly perform casts of variables during interaction
      with the WebKit engine, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
      service or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors.
    
    
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 6.0.472.63~r59945-5+squeeze5.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 11.0.696.68~r84545-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your chromium-browser packages.
