31 Mar 12 Google Chrome 18 has its fair share of fixes


Google has just rolled out their latest version of the Chrome Web browser, bumping up the version number to 18. Of course, since this is the latest version of the extremely popular Web browser, you can be sure that there will be plenty of fixes introduced to the final release, giving you an extremely pleasant user experience. It seems that up to 9 security glitches were fixed and included in the updated Adobe Flash Player, delivering the capability for the software to update itself automatically. “Silent updates“, we call those. Out of the 9 bugs which were addressed in Chrome version 18, three of them have been rated as high-priority, which means an attacker brilliant enough is capable of exploiting those flaws in order to gain control of a particular infected system. Good money fixes such holes, as Google actually forked out $12,000 to independent researchers in order to identify and report such bugs. Have you updated to Chrome 18.0.1025.142 yet? Perhaps you might want to do so, where it will also come with the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.
