        A heap-based buffer overflow issue was discovered in chromium's
        ffmpeg media filter.
    
    In addition, this version corrects a regression in the previous update.
    Support for older i386 processors had been dropped.  This functionality
    is now restored.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 35.0.1916.153-1~deb7u1.
    
    For the testing (jessie) and unstable (sid) distribution, these problems
    have been fixed in version 35.0.1916.153-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your chromium-browser packages.
