CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Technical Details:
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. For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 6.0.472.63~r59945-5+squeeze2 For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon. For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 9.0.597.98~r74359-1

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
