Chrome On Windows 7 Got Pwned By VUPEN Security With Zero Day Exploit

Google was offering hackers money to throw every trick of their trade against Chrome web browser to prove a point that Chrome isn’t hackable.  Unfortunately, just recently VUPEN Security company who provides defensive and offensive computer securities to governments and Fortune 500 companies had successfully hacked Chrome browser on Windows 7.  The company was able to come up with a zero day exploit that is not yet in the wild, I hope, to exploit Chrome browser and launch a calculator on Windows 7.  I’m not sure this same trick can be done on Mac OS X or not.  Anyhow, check out the video right after the break on this.
