#1769 Google fixes 12 high-severity flaws In Chrome browser
Google is urging Windows, Mac and Linux users to update their Chrome browsers to fix multiple vulnerabilities that could allow malicious third parties to take control of targeted systems.

Released Thursday, Chrome version 55.0.2883.75 for Windows, Mac, and Linux fixes those security issues. It also introduces a number of new features to the browser to enhance the way it handles panning gestures and to support CSS automatic hyphenation.

The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) issued an alert around the Chrome update on Thursday in conjunction with Google, detailing a list of 26 bug bounty payments totaling $70,000 paid to external researchers. According to Google, another 10 security fixes were tackled by Google itself.
