Google has released a new version of its Chrome browser, fixing three serious security vulnerabilities in earlier versions of the browser.
Google released version 188.8.131.524 for Windows on Tuesday, fixing the three security flaws, for which it paid $1500 through its bug bounty program. Two of the vulnerabilities are memory-corruption flaws, one in HTML5 handling and one in font handling. The other flaw is a cross-origin bypass in Google URL.
Google started a reward program earlier this year that pays out different amounts of money to researchers who find bugs in Chrome or Chromium. The payouts start at $500 and rise from there, depending upon the severity of the bug and its exploitability.
