Google patches Chrome days before hacking contest

Google has patched 11 vulnerabilities in the Windows version of Chrome, including one that earned its finder the first $1,337 check from the company’s new bug bounty program.

Like Apple , which updated Safari last week , Google beefed up the security of its browser just days before the Pwn2Own browser hacking contest was to kick off in Canada.

The update to Chrome 4.1.249.1036 fixes six flaws rated “high,” the second-most-severe ranking in Google’s four-step threat system; plugs three “medium” holes; and quashes two “low” bugs.

Danish vulnerability tracker Secunia rated the update as “highly critical.”
