Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Chromium to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Chromium. (CVE-2014-3188, CVE-2014-3189, CVE-2014-3190, CVE-2014-3191, CVE-2014-3192, CVE-2014-3193, CVE-2014-3194, CVE-2014-3199, CVE-2014-3200)
