Chromium on Debian Jessie is no longer supported and will not receive any more security updates.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), security support for chromium has
been discontinued.

Chromium devs are simply not interested in LTS for debian. At least this time around, stretch has been out for 6 months and you might choose to upgrade to stable. When they bailed on wheezy, wheezy was still stable (not yet oldstable) and jessie wasn't released until months later. Their breakneck development cycle doesn't mesh with the Debian notion of stability, so I haven't touched it since.
