Google releases Chrome 6

Google on Thursday acknowledged the two-year anniversary of its Chrome browser with a new stable channel version that addresses more than a dozen security vulnerabilities. The flaws may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code, bypass security restrictions, obtain sensitive information, or conduct spoofing attacks, according to an advisory posted by the US-CERT on Friday. Google, which provides monetary rewards for the disclosure of security bugs, paid out $4,337 in bounties for the vulnerabilities. The Chrome 6.0.472.53 stable channel update is available for Windows, Mac and Linux users. — AM
