Google Rushes to Patch Chrome for Pwn2Own Bug

Posted on March 17th, 2011 by

Google has released an update to its Chrome browser to patch a bug that was exploited in the recent Pwn2Own contest. Yet this is not a Chrome bug; it’s a flow in the version of Adobe Flash that is included with Chrome. Nevertheless, this bug has been exploited in the wild, and Adobe is working on an update.

The new version of Chrome is 10.0.648.134, and the program will update itself when you launch it.
