Google Releases Chrome 15.0.874.102 – Pays Out $26,511 To Bug Hunters

(LiveHacking.Com) – Google has released Chrome 15 for Windows, OS X and Linux with a redesigned  New Tab page and over $26,000 of security fixes. The biggest bug bounty went to Sergey Glazunov for bugs related to cross-origin policy violations. Google paid him a little over $12,000 for his efforts.

None of the bugs fixed were rated “Critical”, however 11 of the 18 vulnerabilities were rated “high,” while 3 were ranked as “medium” and another four were tagged as “low.”

The full list of  security related bugs fixed (along with any reward payment) is:
