Google Fixes Chrome Vulnerability Discovered At Vancouver Hacker Conference
At this year’s CanSecWest, a conference held in Vancouver, Canada that focuses on digital security, Google got a little surprise as their Chrome browser was successfully hacked as part of a competition that Goole previously announced. As Chrome is such a key part of Google’s success in business, they offered prize money to anyone who could find vulnerabilities in their browser. Before the show ever opened on Wednesday, a Russian university student and security researcher Sergey Glazunov managed to hack into a fully patched Windows 7 machine by exploiting a remote code execution vulnerability in Google’s Chrome browser.
This little could get Sergey upwards of $60,000, and no doubt a few job offers.
