Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the Chromium browser. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

  • CVE-2011-2818 Use-after-free vulnerability in Google Chrome allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors related to display box rendering.

  • CVE-2011-2800 Google Chrome allows remote attackers to obtain potentially sensitive information about client-side redirect targets via a crafted website.

  • CVE-2011-2359 Google Chrome does not properly track line boxes during rendering, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors that lead to a

    Google Chrome does not properly track line boxes during

Several unauthorised SSL certificates have been found in the wild
