CVE-2013-2880

    The chrome 28 development team found various issues from internal
    fuzzing, audits, and other studies.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 28.0.1500.71-1~deb7u1.

For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 28.0.1500.71-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your chromium-browser packages.
