Google has updated its Chrome web browser to the memorable version number 14.0.835.163, and, in the process, has patched a total of 32 security flaws. These bugs are rated low to high, with none getting the worry-inducing “critical” rating. Some of the bugs fixed include:
- Possible URL bar spoofs with unusual user interaction
- Insecure lock file handling in the Mac installer
- URL bar spoof with forward button
- Out-of-bounds read with Tibetan characters
As can be seen from these and others on Google’s web page, none of these are deal-breakers, but it’s important to realize that even seemingly small issues can have repercussions where security is concerned.
