Google has released a new version of its Chrome browser today, version 7.0.517.44, for Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and Chrome Frame. This version includes a new version of Adobe’s Flash Player plugin (which addresses the CVE 2010-3654 vulnerability I talked about in my last post), as well as fixes for ten other security vulnerabilities. More information on the vulnerabilities fixed in this version is in the release announcement on the official “Chrome Releases” blog.
I recommend installing the new version as soon as you conveniently can. You can get it using the update mechanism built into the software (Menu: Help / About Google Chrome); Linux users can get the new version using the standard package update mechanism.
