    The Google Chrome Security Team discovered two issues (a race condition
    and a use-after-free issue) in the International Components for Unicode
    (ICU) library.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 4.4.1-8+squeeze2.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), which is only affected by
    CVE-2013-2924, this problem has been fixed in version 4.8.1.1-12+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), which is only affected by
    CVE-2013-2924, this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), which is only affected by
    CVE-2013-2924, this problem has been fixed in version 4.8.1.1-13+nmu1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your icu packages.
