Google updated Chrome this week, fixing a high-risk vulnerability that leaves outdated versions of the popular Web browser open to attack.
For identifying and reporting the error, Google paid researcher Christian Holler $1,000 in accordance with its bounty-hunting program for bugs.
This is the second Chrome update in the past week; on Nov. 10, Google fixed seven Chrome bugs, five of which were labeled high risk.
If you use Chrome, your browser should automatically update itself. To check, click on the wrench in the top right corner, next to the star symbol, and then choose “About Google Chrome.”
