Security Fixes and Rewards

Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.

This update includes 42 security fixes. Below, we highlight fixes that were either contributed by external researchers or particularly interesting. Please see the Chromium security page for more information.

As usual, our ongoing internal security work was responsible for a wide range of fixes:
[433500] CVE-2014-7910: Various fixes from internal audits, fuzzing and other initiatives.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

chromium-39.0.2171.65 is in the tree. However, stabilization is blocked.

radhermit: Can we stabilize >=dev-libs/protobuf-2.5.0-r1? Do you have a preference on which version?

Sure, feel free to stabilize =dev-libs/protobuf-2.5.0-r1.

I don't think =dev-libs/protobuf-2.6* has had enough testing yet since it probably breaks things and is still masked due to that.
