Google Chrome criticised over lack of security

"Users should wait to use Google Chrome after its vulnerabilities were exposed.

He claimed that the oversight by Google is indicative of either a lack of attention to security in development, or a mandate to put something out there by a certain date without regard for quality from a security standpoint.


He said: “Google's inattentiveness to security was one of the feature presentations at the Blackhat conference this year. Anyone who has followed Google with respect to security would not trust that Chrome will be safe to use for quite some time.


“Google is at about the same place Microsoft was a decade ago. They have some bright security people, but marketing is trampling over security right, left and centre. Like Microsoft, security inside of Google is only likely to have an appropriate voice when their lack of security starts to affect the bottom line.""
