Video: Chrome Vulnerability Exposed

Posted on 10. May, 2011 by in Rumors, Videos

flattr this!

The following is a video by VUPEN Security that shows the Chrome browser on Windows 7 SP1 being exploited by going to a web page and then loading an executable, in this case the calculator. This shows that any sort of malicious program could conceivably be run just by going to a web page if this is true.

What’s curious is why VUPEN will not disclose what this vulnerability is to Google. If you know an exploit, Google will be pay you a reward for this if it is submitted by a person. Does VUPEN have more to perhaps gain by keeping this exploit a secret and selling it to its government customers as it says it is going to?

Let us know in the comments.

    I think this is a fake. First of all I don’t think it would take that long to spawn a calculator process, and why is the Process Explorer window mostly hidden when he is showing us the calc.exe process in it? And if you line it up, the calc.exe process is a child of explorer.exe, not any of the chrome.exe processes. Second, why are they so hesitant to disclose the information with Google? That would get this vulnerability patched faster than giving it to their “Government customers.”

    Thanks for your comment. I also assumed that this was not real when I first read about it, and I am still skeptical. But if its Chrome-related and being reported I have an obligation to post it.
