"Google has released version 5.0.375.125 of Chrome, a security
update that addresses three "high" risk vulnerabilities in its
WebKit-based browser. According to the developers, two of the high
risk issues could lead to memory corruption while SVG handling or
rendering code. A third high risk problem affecting large canvases
has also been addressed.
"Additionally, the stable channel update addresses one medium
risk vulnerability related to memory contents disclosure in layout
code and a single low risk issue. Further details of the
vulnerabilities are being withheld until "a majority of users are
up-to-date with the fix". All users are encouraged to update to the
latest release as soon as possible."
