Stable Channel Update


The stable channel has been updated to 3.0.195.32, and includes the following security and stability fixes:
  • Resolved a history issue that affected going back from queries in Google Maps. (Issue: 21353)
  • Fixed issue with Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.2, where no content would be displayed. (Issue: 24883)
  • Fixed an infinite loop in AAC decoding. (Webkit Issue: 27239)
  • Fixed a top crasher. (Issue: 22205)
  • Fix issues where setInterval sometimes eats 100% CPU. (Issue: 25892)
Security Fixes:

CVE-2009-XXXX User not warned for some file types that can execute JavaScript

The user was not warned about certain possibly dangerous file types such as SVG, MHT and XML files. In some browsers, JavaScript can execute within these types of files. Because the JavaScript runs in the local context, it may be able to access local resources.

(This issue will be made public once a majority of users are up to date with the fix.)

Severity: Medium

Mitigations:

  • A victim would need to visit a page under an attacker's control.
  • The victim would furthermore need to open a malicious file.


CVE-2009-XXXX Possible memory corruption in the Gears plugin

A malicious site could use the Gears SQL API to put SQL metadata into a bad state, which could cause a subsequent memory corruption. This may lead to a Gears plugin crash or possibly arbitrary code execution.

More info: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=26179
(This issue will be made public once a majority of users are up to date with the fix.)

Severity: High
Credit: This issue was found by the Google Chrome security team.
Mitigations:

  • A victim would need to visit a page under an attacker's control.
  • The victim would furthermore need to "click-through" the Gears dialog confirming that they trust the attacker's evil page.

ei, the download system is very slow.
When I download a file, the speed is 60 kps but my internet has 2 MB of speed.

Why don´t solve this problem?

@erg i doubt that your connection speed has anything to do with chrome..

Sometime anti-virus module may slow down web browser, Antivir Premium Webguard is slowing Chrome a lot for me and I disable it

opening 31 bookmarks with webguard : 3m30 and without 20 sec, cache cleared between each try

I'm having this problem with some flash based games when google chrome shows 2 mouse pointers, one on the game and the other one the OS's pointer, which should be hidden and only the game's pointer visible. It's quite annoying.

It might just be me, but my inbox on facebook along with the "view all friends" overlay popup doesn't work anymore. Hasn't for some days now. This is strictly a Chrome issue, works on Firefox and IE. I'm on stable channel!
