Google Chrome contains an overflow condition in the 'InotifyReaderTask::Run' function in base/files/file_path_watcher_linux.cc that is triggered as file descriptors are not properly verified. This may allow an attacker to cause a stack-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.
