Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Google Chrome, where some have unknown impacts and others can be exploited by malicious people to potentially compromise a user's system.

1) A use-after-free error related to text editing can be exploited to corrupt memory.

2) An unspecified error related to the processing of an enormous text area can be exploited to corrupt memory.

3) An error related to a bad cast exists within the handling of the SVG use element.

4) An error in the XPath handling can be exploited to access invalid memory.

For more information:
SA42175

5) A use-after-free error related to text control selections can be exploited to corrupt memory.

6) Multiple integer overflow errors exist in the font handling.

These vulnerabilities affect only the Linux platform.

8) An unspecified error exists related to the usage of a destroyed frame object.

9) An unspecified error exists related to type confusions with event objects.

10) An unspecified error in the SVG handling can be exploited to trigger an out-of-bounds array access.

If I have upgraded to the referenced version of Chrome, 7.0.517.44, then why does it still show up as a threat?

Hello.
Below is a copy of an extract from the advisory :-
) An unspecified error exists related to type confusions with event objects.

10) An unspecified error in the SVG handling can be exploited to trigger an out-of-bounds array access.

Solution
Update to version 7.0.517.44.


Provided and/or discovered by
The vendor credits:
1) David Bloom, Google Security Team, Google Chrome Security Team (Inferno), and Google Chrome Security Team (Cris Neckar).
2, 10) wushi, team509
3) kuzzcc

The advisory is therefore relative to prior versions of Stable Chrome.
If you have an insecurity/vulnerability being reported by psi...tho' you have 7.0.517.44 installed.....it's probable that you havn't deleted the previous version which is not automatically removed. psi will continue to detect older/prior versions even if they are in the Recycle bin.
This section of the forum is reserved for staff discussion specifically related to the advisory......please use other sections in the future.....thankyou.
Hope this helps...regards,
