"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."
