Google Releases Fix For 32 Bugs In Chrome Browser

A few updates released for the Chrome browser.

Google today patched 32 vulnerabilities in Chrome, paying more than $14,000 in bug bounties as it also upgraded the stable edition of the browser to version 14.
The company called out a pair of developer-oriented additions to Chrome 14 and noted new support for Mac OS X 10.7, aka Lion, including full-screen mode and vanishing scrollbars.

Fifteen of the 32 vulnerabilities were rated "high," the second-most-serious ranking in Google's four-step scoring system, while 10 were pegged "medium" and the remaining seven were marked "low." None of the flaws were ranked "critical," the category usually reserved for bugs that may allow an attacker to escape Chrome's anti-exploit sandbox. Google has patched several critical bugs this year, the last time in April.


Most exploits are never seen in the wild till after the browser companies make a change list of what they fixed and I don't expect anything will change here, the vast majority of  folks follow the automatic update path and this is always the best policy to follow if you want at least a half reasonable level of protection, in recent news Microsoft announced some detail's of their internet explorer 10 version and it seems they don't want to support flash, that decision will come back to bite them on the backside I believe.
