It looks like Google’s Chrome OS has been hacked by two security researchers who demonstrated the hack at the Black Hat security conference yesterday, and according to a report they used a web based attack to compromise the security of Google’s Chrome OS.
Matt Johanson and Kyle Osborn two researchers from White Hat Security’s Threat Research Center,were able to access a number of things within Google’s Chrome OS, which included contacts, emails, Google Docs and even Google Voice messages.
Google has been informed of the vulnerabilities that were used to gain access to the information, so we can expect to see these issues fixed with a security update in the near future.
