6 Serious Chrome Bugs Patched By GoogleThe six bugs that prompted Google to update Chrome to version 10.0.648.204 were all deemed to be on the threat level of “high,” the second highest ranking in Google’s threat scoring system.

Google’s bug-tracking database was locked down so as to prevent access to the technical details of the now patched vulnerabilities. The bug entries are usually unlocked after several weeks and sometimes months so as to give users enough time to update before the data goes public.

A total of three researches reported these particular vulnerabilities, earning themselves $8,500 in bounties collectively. Google has paid out a total of $58,145 so far this year to researchers who reported vulnerabilities to the company.

Being the 6th time that Google has patched security vulnerabilities in Chrome this year, the company also brought along support for the browser’s password manager in Linux as well as including stability fixes.

    The damn Chrome 10 is a total SHIT when it is about downloading files. The last 9 version was much better, they need to turn the download mechanism back into the same as in the last 9 version or they’ll definitely lose the ‘battle’ of browsers due to the shame that Chrome 10 is regarding download of files. Even the mechanism for loading pages is not as good as it was in the last 9 version. Fact. But the need to correct this problem with downloads at least, as soon as possible.
