+ - 122 Revealed: Google Chrome WAS Exploited at Pwnium 2013->

Submitted by Freshly Exhumed
Freshly Exhumed (105597) writes "Sean Michael Kerner has revealed an inconvenient truth: earlier this month, 'Google Chrome running Chrome OS was hailed as being a survivor in the Pwnium/Pwn2own event that hacked IE, Firefox and Chrome browsers on Windows. Apple's Safari running on Mac OS X was not hacked and neither (apparently) was Chrome on Chrome OS. Google disclosed this morning that Chrome on Chrome OS had in fact been exploited — albeit, unreliably. The same researcher that took Google's money last year for exploiting Chrome, known publicly only as 'PinkiePie' was awarded $40,000 for exploiting Chrome/Chrome OS via a Linux kernel bug, config file error and a video parsing flaw.' So, was it really Google Chrome, or was Linux to blame?"
