Description

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.
