Chrome patchJust a few days after releasing a fairly large set of patches for its Chrome browser, Google has pushed out another update, fixing 13 vulnerabilities, more than half of them being high-severity bugs.

The newest version of Chrome also includes an updated version of Adobe Flash that has a fix for a serious zero-day vulnerability. Adobe patched that flaw on Wednesday, and Google included the updated version of Flash in the fixes it pushed out yesterday, as well. As part of its bug bounty program, Google paid out more than $6,800 in rewards to researchers who reported flaws to the company. Several of the other flaws that didn’t qualify for a reward were discovered by members of Google’s internal security team.

Here’s the lst of fixes in Chrome 17.0.963.56:
