Google has recently launched a new version of its Chrome browser that comes to fix a critical security flaw found in the application.

Google Chrome 31.0.1650.57 is aimed at Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X and according to the Mountain View-based company, it addresses multiple memory corruption issues found by security researcher Pinkie Pie.

In case you’re wondering, the security expert has received a $50,000 (€37,000) reward for his findings, as the flaw would allow attackers to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable machine. Android versions of Chrome are also said to be affected by the same flaw, so make sure you update the mobile flavor as well.

Of course, all users running the stable version of Google Chrome are highly recommended to deploy the update as soon as possible, regardless of the operating system they are currently running.
