Google Patches 50 Security Vulnerabilities in Chrome Browser Update

Google has plugged 50 security vulnerabilities in the latest update to the Chrome browser.

Among the issues fixed in Chrome 37 are a number of bugs that can be used together to break out of the Chrome sandbox and execute code remotely. That discovery earned the researcher behind it a $30,000 bug bounty. Several other vulnerabilities earned researchers between $500 and $4,000.
