Google Chrome’s first security issue

September 4, 2008

For those that remember, a couple of months ago Apple was embarrassed with the Safari issue, to do with WebKit, but this was quickly fixed by the folk at Apple.

However, virtually the same issue has now appeared in the new Chrome browser, brought to the world by Google.

The security flaw leaves the browser open to carpet bombing, where Chrome users can easily be tricked into running executable files that appear to come from the Chrome browser.

When the browser has been downloaded, the user has already agreed to Google updating the browser as and when they please, so there will no doubt be a security update being released very soon.

This is no way as serious as the problem with the Safari, and Chrome is only one day into beta after all.

Who knows what else is going to pop up over the next days, weeks and months.
