potentially affected by the following security issues :

- If an attacker could trick a user into holding down the
'Enter' key, via a malicious game, for example, a
malicious application or extension could be downloaded
and executed.(CVE-2011-2372, CVE-2011-3001)

corrupt memory. No additional information is available
at this time. (CVE-2011-2995, CVE-2011-2997)

visiting a vulnerable web server. The same fix has been
applied to the headers 'Content-Length' and
'Content-Disposition'. (CVE-2011-3000)

- A use-after-free error exists when parsing OGG headers.
