Critical Chrome Vulnerability

by Chrome Blog on September 6, 2008

A Critical Vulnerability has been identified in Google Chrome Version and all builds prior which enables an attacker to perform a Buffer Overflow attack and perform remote code execution.

To avoid being effected users are advised to not use the “Save As” function on untrusted websites.

I have setup a proof of concept page at the link below, to test it just Right Click and choose Save As on any white part of the page. Note, ensure you have no unsaved work in any tabs before proceeding to the test page. Also the test page is not malicious and will not cause any permanent effects to your PC or Chrome installation.

Test Google Chrome Vulnerability

On Windows XP SP2 it will execute your Windows calculator, on other Service Packs it will crash Google Chrome.

This vulnerability allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code on your system.

Google Chrome developers are working on a fix and it will be implemented as soon as a solution becomes available.

Credit to Bkis Security Advisories for the discovery.

Update: As mentioned below by Kevin and S Sheth this has been fixed in Version along with the :% issue as well as some Javascript issues with Facebook.
