    Google March 24 paid out $8,500 for six Chrome Web browser flaws found by enterprising developers. The company also issued two new SSL certificates to protect against the Comodo certificate issue. Google March 24 sewed up six security holes in its Chrome Web browser with an upgrade to the stable and beta channels for Chrome 10.0.648.204 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome Frame.

    The search engine, which in this upgrade also added support for the browser's password manager on Linux and fortified Chrome's performance and stability, paid out $8,500 to the discoverers of the six vulnerabilities, all of which were rated high risk.
