Today, Google released a new version of its Chrome Web browser, version 8.0.552.224, which incorporates fixes for five security vulnerabilities. The new version is available in the Stable and Beta channels for all platforms (Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows). More details are available in the Release Announcement, posted on the official Chrome Releases blog. Mac and Windows users can get the new version using the browser’s built-in update mechanism (select “About Google Chrome” from the tool menu); Linux users can get the updated package using their usual package maintenance tool (e.g., adept, synaptic).
I recommend installing this update as soon as you conveniently can.
