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


CVE-2011-0777

Use-after-free vulnerability in Google Chrome before 9.0.597.84 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other
impact via vectors related to image loading


CVE-2011-0778

Google Chrome before 9.0.597.84 does not properly restrict drag and drop
operations, which might allow remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin
Policy via unspecified vectors


CVE-2011-0783

Unspecified vulnerability in Google Chrome before 9.0.597.84 allows
user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via vectors involving a "bad volume setting."


CVE-2011-0983

Google Chrome before 9.0.597.94 does not properly handle anonymous blocks,
which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have
unspecified other impact via unknown vectors that lead to a "stale pointer."


CVE-2011-0981

Google Chrome before 9.0.597.94 does not properly perform event handling for
animations, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or
possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors that lead to a
"stale pointer."


CVE-2011-0984

Google Chrome before 9.0.597.94 does not properly handle plug-ins, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read)
via unspecified vectors


CVE-2011-0985

Google Chrome before 9.0.597.94 does not properly perform process termination
upon memory exhaustion, which has unspecified impact and remote attack vectors.
