Description

Chromium is an open-source web browser, powered by WebKit (Blink).

Two flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Chromium to crash, execute arbitrary code, or disclose sensitive information when visited by the victim. (CVE-2016-1629)

All Chromium users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Chromium version 48.0.2564.116, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Chromium must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
