AdityaK Sood, from the EvilFingers community who disclosed the first Chrome DoS vulnerability at the beginning of the month, has released a proof of concept demonstrating a memory exhaustion DoS vulnerability affecting Google Chrome versions 0.2.149.30 and 0.2.149.29. He went on to state:
Visiting a Vulnerable web page can result in 100% resource usage on PC’s, resulting in the crashing of open applications and the loss of unsaved work.
Before visiting the proof of concept page, ensure you do not have any unsaved work. The concept page is not malicious, but it will elevate your PC’s resource usage. It’s designed to “not” be too aggressive or to crash your running application but will highlight the issue.
