Share this article:
Google on Tuesday released a “stable channel” version of its Chrome 7 web browser, with fixes for a number of vulnerabilities. Version 7.0.517.41 for Windows, Mac and Linux includes fixes for at least 11 flaws, which could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code, cause a denial-of-service, conduct URL spoofing or bypass security restrictions, according to an advisory from the US-CERT. The one critical flaw listed in the bunch could cause a browser crash due to an issue involving the form auto-fill capability. Of the remaining flaws, five were rated “high,” three were listed “medium” and one “low.” — AM
