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.
