    Package        : chromium-browser
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-17478
    
    An out-of-bounds bounds memory access issue was discovered in chromium's
    v8 javascript library by cloudfuzzer.
    
    This update also fixes two problems introduced by the previous security
    upload.  Support for arm64 has been restored and gconf-service is no longer
    a package dependency.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 70.0.3538.102-1~deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your chromium-browser packages.
