    Debian Bug     : 922794 923298
    
    A regression was introduced in the previous chromium security update.  The
    browser would always crash when launched in headless mode.  This update fixes
    this problem.
    
    A file conflict with the buster chromium packages is also fixed.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 72.0.3626.96-1~deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your chromium packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of chromium please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
