Google Chrome security flaw - first vulnerability found

Google Chrome Buffer Overflow vulnerability

The SVRT-Bkis guys have found a first vulnerability in Google Chrome that allows a malicious website to execute code on remote system. It works on Windows XP SP2 - on other systems the exploit just crashes Google Chrome.

How to check: goto and click SaveAs.
(you will need win XP SP2 however).

It is super sad that this 'vulnerability' is a stupid buffer overflow. Somehow I believe there will be way more to come. Welcome to the real world, Google Chrome.
