Chrome 106 Update Addresses Several Critical Vulnerabilities


Google has announced that the latest Chrome update patches six high-severity vulnerabilities, including four use-after-free bugs.

External researchers found all the recently patched vulnerabilities, and the internet giant paid out USD 38,000 in bug bounty rewards to the reporters who reported them. The most serious of the recently fixed flaws is CVE-2022-3445, a use-after-free vulnerability in Skia, the open-source 2D graphics library that serves as Chrome’s graphics engine.

This is based on the bug bounty amounts that Google has paid out. Google claims in its advisory that it has given Nan Wang and Yong Liu of Qihoo 360 a USD 15,000 bug bounty reward for reporting the problem last month.
