    Package        : chromium
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-5786
    
    Clement Lecigne discovered a use-after-free issue in chromium's file
    reader implementation.  A maliciously crafted file could be used to
    remotely execute arbitrary code because of this problem.
    
    This update also fixes a regression introduced in a previous update.  The
    browser would always crash when launched in remote debugging mode.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 72.0.3626.122-1~deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your chromium packages.
