Google Chrome Beta Update

Tweet This

Beta release: 0.4.154.25 includes feature and bug fixes as well as the following Security Update:

"Security Issues

  • This release fixes an issue with downloaded HTML files being able to read other files on your computer and send them to sites on the Internet. We now prevent local files from connecting to the network with XMLHttpRequest() and also prompt you to confirm a download if it is an HTML file.

Severity: Moderate. If a user could be enticed to open a downloaded HTML file, this flaw could be exploited to send arbitrary files to an attacker.
[Originally fixed in 154.18]"
Reminder: It is not advisable to use Beta software on production systems.




Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
