Chrome gets flashier with twin security fixes

Google Chrome takes a bite out of Flash cookies.

Google has updated its Chrome web browser with the lastest version of Adobe Flash Player.

Patches 64046 and 80608 were rolled out overnight to fix bad casts in the Chromium WebKit and integer overflows in SVG filters.

Both vulnerabilities were found by Chome security researchers. Specific details are being kept under wraps until most users have applied the updates.

The inclusion of the new Flash Player 10.3 will give Chrome users more privacy and security by allowing them to delete Local Shared Objects, which are a type of cookie stored by Adobe.
