Huge Chrome vulnerability patched

Google Chrome 17.0.963.56 fixes 12 security faults, seven of which are counted as high severity, four of medium severity and one low severity.

Security research worker Jüri Aedla accepted a special $1,337 reward for disclosing and reporting an integer overflow vulnerability in libpng, the library utilized by Chrome to work PNG images.

Additional high-severity flaws were accounted in the browser’s PDF codecs, its subframe loading, h.264 parsing and path handling components, in addition to its MKV, database, column and counter node handling code.  The new Chrome version also includes fixes for Adobes Flash player.
