Google has pushed out a new version of its Chrome browser, fixing two high-priority security bugs as well as several other flaws.
Google Chrome 8.0.552.224 is now available in both the stable and beta channels, and Google also has updated the Chromium OS with the new changes. The company released new versions of Chrome for all of the supported platforms, including Windows, OS X and Linux. One of the high-priority bugs fixed in the new release, a problem with bad validation in message deserialization, applies only to systems running 64-bit Linux.
As part of Google’s bug bounty program, the company handed out $2,000 in rewards to researchers who reported vulnerabilities that were fixed in this release: $1,000 to Chris Rohlf for a CSS parsing bug and $1,000 to Sławomir Błażek and Sergey Glazunov for reporting a high-risk bug relating to stale pointers in cursor handling.
