Time to patch Google Chrome

April 27, 2009

google_chromeEarlier this month, a problem was discovered in Google’s new web browser, Google Chrome, that would have allowed an attacker to launch and run scripts on a compromised machine. The issue, originally discovered by Roi Saltzman of the IBM Rational Application Security Research Group, had been given a security rating of “high.” Interestingly enough, although the attack takes advantage of security issues in Google Chrome, the initial entry point for the malicious code would have taken place in Internet Explorer.

Goolge has now released a patch for this issue. If you want to make sure your browser is up-to-date, click through for the instructions.
