Google rolled out a security update of Chrome that fixes the V8 JavaScript engine vulnerability, discovered by Mozilla Security. Malicious JavaScript, Google says, can cause the Chrome browser to run arbitrary code, although that code may still be protected by the browser's "sandbox" -- its protected area of memory where running code has no access to system resources. However, it's conceivable that code running within the sandbox could provoke the user (by social means, perhaps by feigning a crash or system bug) to perform an action that may trigger a more damaging process delivered through a different payload, so Google treated the issue with a "High" severity rating.
