NetworkWorld reports Microsoft discovered two minor security vulnerabilities in Google's Chrome browser:
But there's nothing stopping Microsoft researchers from poking through Google software and finding bugs of their own. And that's just what they're doing now, announcing a new vulnerability disclosure policy for non-Microsoft products, and kicking off the program today with two security reports covering products made by none other than Google.

Both security reports affect the Chrome browser. Google likes to brag that its sandboxing method keeps users safer than they would otherwise be in Internet Explorer. But no browser is bullet-proof and Microsoft wants Web surfers to know that Chrome has problems of its own.
