Security Fixes and Rewards

Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.

This update includes 4 security fixes. Below, we highlight fixes that were contributed by external researchers. Please see the Chrome Security Page for more information.

As usual, our ongoing internal security work was responsible for a wide range of fixes

Chrome Version 66 for Windows seems to have a critical Bug in the DEV Engine: The Debugger chrashes after some single steps. This occurs very often and makes Chrome unusable for developers. This behavior can be reconstructed f.e. on home page: Expand to structured view and set brakepoint on Line 8541 -> press several times F10. After 5 ... 15 times - the Debugger crashes. It seems to be a result of meltdown hotfix. Please fix the fix!

This latest Chrome browser has an *extremely annoying bug*: Whenever you scroll down a page, after awhile the page will automatically scroll back up to where you started.

Never seen this before in all the versions of Chrome that I've used.

That is a very odd issue, but have you truly determined that it's a bug in Chrome? To do that, try a different mouse or trackpad from what you are using now; make sure you are not accidentally touching the trackpad surface, if you have a MacBook-series model Mac (including Air and Pro); check the gesture settings in System Preferences, as you could be invoking something there accidentally; and finally, make sure the mice or trackpads being tested are clear of gunk and debris. If all of these tests do not produce a change in behavior, you have indeed found a Chrome bug, which you should report at
