Package        : chromium-browser
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-3154 CVE-2014-3155 CVE-2014-3156 CVE-2014-3157

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the chromium web browser.

CVE-2014-3154

    Collin Payne discovered a use-after-free issue in the filesystem API.

CVE-2014-3155

    James March, Daniel Sommermann, and Alan Frindell discovered several
    out-of-bounds read issues in the SPDY protocol implementation.

CVE-2014-3156

    Atte Kettunen discovered a buffer overflow issue in bitmap handling
    in the clipboard implementation.

CVE-2014-3157

    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.
