Google Chrome 5.0.375.70 has been released to the Stable channel on Linux, Mac, and Windows. According to Google, Apple gets credit for two of the eleven security issues that were fixed with in the release. Google does these posts with each new release to the various Chrome channels, and gives credit to the people who find bugs. They even reward money to those who find critical bugs — for example, one person got $2,000 this batch of fixes, and another got $500 (and some have humorously gotten $1,337 in the past).

Apple didn't get paid, but both were labeled as "high" security issues: [44740] High Memory corruption in font handling. Credit: Apple; [44955] High Memory corruption in rendering of list markers. Credit: Apple.
