Google says that the exploit Chromium contributor Sergey Glazunov discovered has already been fixed. It has also patched another exploit announced at Pwn2Own 2012.
The day before two annual Google-sponsored hacking contests kick off at a security conference in Vancouver, Google tidies up some of Chrome's loose ends.
Nearly $4 million in prize money between Pwnium and Pwn2Own drives more attention than ever to the two hacking contests, as Google crosses the $3 million security award mark.
A hacker known as Pinkie Pie scored another win in a Google-sponsored contest by uncovering a flaw in the Chrome browser.
The winner, Sergey Glazunov, was the first to submit an entry in Google's Pwnium competition to find security exploits in Chrome.
Believing the easy security holes have already been found, Google is adding new financial incentives for outside bug hunters.
