Google Chrome OS Linux WAS Exploited at Pwnium 2013 for $40,000

Google disclosed this morning that Chrome on Chrome OS had in fact been exploited – albeit, unreliably. The same researcher that took Google’s money last year for exploiting Chrome, known publicly only as ‘PinkiePie’ was awarded $40,000 for exploiting Chrome/Chrome OS via a Linux kernel bug, config file error and a video parsing flaw.
