Google Chrome Security Issues Fixed, Update Released

Google updated their Google Chrome browser yesterday with a new release (version 2.0.172.33) which includes a major fix of a critical security flaw in the browser. According to the Chrome Releases blog, Google Chrome had a vulnerability to “buffer overflow in handling certain responses from HTTP servers. A specially crafted response from a server could crash the browser and possibly allow an attacker to run arbitrary code. ”

Google said that the vulnerability made Chrome open to attackers who might be able to run code with the privileges of logged on users. If you use Google Chrome and you have the auto update feature turned on, it should update itself.
