  have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors.

  a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors
  related to the ruby element and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) token sequences.


CVE-2011-1444

  Race condition in the sandbox launcher implementation in Google Chrome on
  Linux allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have
  unspecified other impact via unknown vectors.


CVE-2011-1797

  Google Chrome does not properly render tables, 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."

  Google Chrome does not properly perform casts of variables during interaction
  with the WebKit engine, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
  service or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors.
