Google takes it to 11 on Chrome security fix

WebKit tune-up

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Google has patched 11 security holes in Chrome as Apple released Safari 5, the latest version of its WebKit rival.

The patch for Chrome 5.0.375.70 on Linux, Mac and Windows is the first fix for Google's browser since the stable versions of the Mac and Linux editions were announced.

Google has fixed nine high-level vulnerabilities and one medium-level. These included cross-site scripting holes, a breach of the Linux sandbox, memory corruptions and an error in Chrome's geolocation capabilities that fired up after a document was deleted.

An error in the DOM method, meanwhile, earned one security researcher $2,000 under the search giant's system to reward those finding bugs in its code.

The update followed Monday's Safari 5 from Apple that patched a record 48 vulnerabilities, most of them on WebKit - also used in Chrome. It's the first major update to Apple's browser in a year. ®
