Debian DSA-4340-1 : chromium-browser - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 119018


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


An out-of-bounds bounds memory access issue was discovered in chromium's v8 JavaScript library by cloudfuzzer.

This update also fixes two problems introduced by the previous security upload. Support for arm64 has been restored and gconf-service is no longer a package dependency.


Upgrade the chromium-browser packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 70.0.3538.102-1~deb9u1.
