The latest patch fixes two flaws in the WebKit open source browser engine at the heart of Chrome.
The first fix is for a memory corruption problem that Google has given a high severity rating.
"Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to a tab crash or arbitrary code execution in the Google Chrome sandbox," said Mark Larson, Google Chrome program manager in a blog posting.
The update addresses the issue through improved memory management, he said.
The second fix is for WebKit's handling of drag and drop functions that given a medium severity rating.
"This may lead to the disclosure of sensitive information when content is dragged over a maliciously crafted web page. This update addresses the issue through improved handling of drag events," said Larson.
