Updated chromium-browser package fixes security vulnerabilities

Description

Chromium-browser 44.0.2403.107 fixes several security issues: PDFium, as used in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89, does not properly handle certain out-of-memory conditions, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted PDF document that triggers a large memory allocation. (CVE-2015-1271) Use-after-free vulnerability in the GPU process implementation in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the continued availability of a GPUChannelHost data structure during Blink shutdown, related to content/browser/gpu/browser_gpu_channel_host_factory.cc and content/renderer/render_thread_impl.cc. (CVE-2015-1272) Heap-based buffer overflow in j2k.c in OpenJPEG before r3002, as used in PDFium in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via invalid JPEG2000 data in a PDF document. (CVE-2015-1273) Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89 does not ensure that the auto-open list omits all dangerous file types, which makes it easier for remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by providing a crafted file and leveraging a user's previous "Always open files of this type" choice, related to download_commands.cc and download_prefs.cc. (CVE-2015-1274) Use-after-free vulnerability in content/browser/indexed_db/indexed_db_backing_store.cc in the IndexedDB implementation in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging an abort action before a certain write operation. (CVE-2015-1276) Use-after-free vulnerability in the accessibility implementation in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging lack of certain validity checks for accessibility-tree data structures. (CVE-2015-1277) content/browser/web_contents/web_contents_impl.cc in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89 does not ensure that a PDF document's modal dialog is closed upon navigation to an interstitial page, which allows remote attackers to spoof URLs via a crafted document, as demonstrated by the alert_dialog.pdf document. (CVE-2015-1278) Integer overflow in the CJBig2_Image::expand function in fxcodec/jbig2/JBig2_Image.cpp in PDFium, as used in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via large height and stride values. (CVE-2015-1279) SkPictureShader.cpp in Skia, as used in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging access to a renderer process and providing crafted serialized data. (CVE-2015-1280) core/loader/ImageLoader.cpp in Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89, does not properly determine the V8 context of a microtask, which allows remote attackers to bypass Content Security Policy (CSP) restrictions by providing an image from an unintended source. (CVE-2015-1281) Multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities in fpdfsdk/src/javascript/Document.cpp in PDFium, as used in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted PDF document, related to the (1) Document::delay and (2) Document::DoFieldDelay functions. (CVE-2015-1282) The LocalFrame::isURLAllowed function in core/frame/LocalFrame.cpp in Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89, does not properly check for a page's maximum number of frames, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid count value and use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted JavaScript code that makes many createElement calls for IFRAME elements. (CVE-2015-1284) The XSSAuditor::canonicalize function in core/html/parser/XSSAuditor.cpp in the XSS auditor in Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89, does not properly choose a truncation point, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via an unspecified linear-time attack. (CVE-2015-1285) Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the V8ContextNativeHandler::GetModuleSystem function in extensions/renderer/v8_context_native_handler.cc in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML by leveraging the lack of a certain V8 context restriction, aka a Blink "Universal XSS (UXSS)." (CVE-2015-1286) Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89, enables a quirks-mode exception that limits the cases in which a Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) document is required to have the text/css content type, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via a crafted web site, related to core/fetch/CSSStyleSheetResource.cpp. (CVE-2015-1287) The Spellcheck API implementation in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89 does not use an HTTPS session for downloading a Hunspell dictionary, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to deliver incorrect spelling suggestions or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted file, a related issue to CVE-2015-1263. (CVE-2015-1288) Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89 allow attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have other impact via unknown vectors. (CVE-2015-1289)
