Google has pushed out a Chrome browser update to fix a pair of security vulnerabilities that expose uses to malicious hacker attacks.
One of the flaws carry a “high-risk” rating because of the threat of arbitrary code execution.
- Vulnerability #2: A malicious site could use the Gears SQL API to put SQL metadata into a bad state, which could cause a subsequent memory corruption. This may lead to a Gears plugin crash or possibly arbitrary code execution. Google says this issue will be made public once a majority of users are up to date with the fix.
The patch is being silently distributed to all Google Chrome users.
