Google closes vulnerabilities in Chrome 5

Google has released version 5.0.375.99 of Chrome, a security update that addresses four "high" risk vulnerabilities in its WebKit-based browser. According to the developers, all four of the high risk issues could lead to memory corruption caused by either invalid PNG files or SVGs, issues in the Bidirectional algorithm or problems in CSS style rendering. The stable channel update also addresses one medium risk vulnerability related to sandboxed iframes and three low risk issues.

As part of its Chromium Security Reward programme, launched earlier this year, Google has been rewarding those reporting security vulnerabilities. Reported by Team 509 and the Oulu University Secure Programming Group (OUSPG), the discoverers of each of the four high risk vulnerabilities closed in the latest stable update were rewarded with $500 or $1,000. In special cases, a committee can decide to increase the amount to a maximum of $1,337, but the maximum is only awarded for vulnerabilities which are particularly critical, or for particularly clever reports on vulnerabilities and their exploitation.
