CVE-2014-3167 (
  Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Google Chrome before 36.0.1985.143
  allow attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have other impact
  via unknown vectors.

CVE-2014-3166 (
  The Public Key Pinning (PKP) implementation in Google Chrome before
  36.0.1985.143 on Windows, OS X, and Linux, and before 36.0.1985.135 on
  Android, does not correctly consider the properties of SPDY connections,
  which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information by leveraging
  the use of multiple domain names.

CVE-2014-3165 (
  Use-after-free vulnerability in
  modules/websockets/WorkerThreadableWebSocketChannel.cpp in the Web Sockets
  implementation in Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 36.0.1985.143,
  allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have
  unspecified other impact via vectors that trigger an unexpectedly long
  lifetime of a temporary object during method completion.

CVE-2014-0538 (
  Use-after-free vulnerability in Adobe Flash Player before and
  14.x before on Windows and OS X and before on Linux,
  Adobe AIR before on Windows and OS X and before on
  Android, Adobe AIR SDK before, and Adobe AIR SDK & Compiler
  before allows attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified
