Google patches Chrome bug

Posted: April 26, 2009 in Tech

Google has patched a bug in its Chrome browser that allowed attackers to perform cross-site scripting attacks.

An error in handling URLs with a chromehtml: protocol could allow an attacker to run scripts of his/her choosing on any page or enumerate files on the local disk under certain conditions.

Chrome users should receive the update automatically, but can force an upgrade by clicking on the Tools menu, selecting About Google Chrome and pressing the Update Now button.
