x86 stable
Comment 3 Richard Freeman gentoo-dev 2012-03-11 13:23:59 UTC
amd64 stable.  

Wonder if we can get emerge or genlop to output the number of digits of pi I could have calculated in the time spent building this over the last week...

And this version doesn't load *any* plug-ins.  I'm not sure that's an improvement.
Comment 5 Tanktalus 2012-03-11 14:19:21 UTC
Sorry, ignore that.  Apparently, chrome left itself loaded and that caused the disagreement.  When I figured that out, and couldn't find where the windows were, I pkilled it (a few times) to force a proper reload.

Thanks, everyone. Already on a GLSA draft.

CVE-2011-3047 (
  The GPU process in Google Chrome before 17.0.963.79 allows remote attackers
  to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption)
  by leveraging an error in the plug-in loading mechanism.
