    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the Chromium browser.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
    the following problems:
    
    CVE-2011-2818
    
       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 display box rendering.
    
    
    CVE-2011-2800
    
       Google Chrome before allows remote attackers to obtain potentially sensitive
       information about client-side redirect targets via a crafted web site.
    
    
    CVE-2011-2359
    
       Google Chrome does not properly track line boxes during rendering, 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."
    
    
    Several unauthorised SSL certificates have been found in the wild issued
    for the DigiNotar Certificate Authority, obtained through a security
    compromise with said company.
    This update blacklists SSL certificates issued by DigiNotar-controlled
    intermediate CAs used by the Dutch PKIoverheid program.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.0.472.63~r59945-5+squeeze6.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 13.0.782.220~r99552-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 13.0.782.220~r99552-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your chromium-browser packages.
