Chrome vulnerability discovered, Google paysSergey Glazunov is certainly pretty adept and sniffing out security vulnerabilities in the Google Chrome browser, as the Internet search giant recently awarded him $3,133.70 (“eleet”) for finding a critical vulnerability which Google patched with a new release of Chrome yesterday. This is the first time Google has done such, although for Glazunov, he isn’t on the receiving end for the first time. He also received $1,337 four times over for the “leet” level of vulnerabilities, eleven times for the $1,000-level, and once at the $500 level. The current critical vulnerability discovered refers to a “stale pointer in speech handling” according to Google, but they have not published additional details. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that someone out there is making sure your computer remains safe from external threats, right?
