Google Chrome hacked – but not by who you’d expect

Google has put up a proof-of-concept (PoC) code that exploits the Spectre vulnerability in Chrome as part of its bid to help web developers mitigate browser-based side-channel attacks.

This follows last month’s development when Google’s security engineer Mike West wrote a note to the W3C’s Web Application Security Working Group, suggesting recommendations for web developers to write Spectre-resistant code. Reportedly the group is considering officially endorsing West’s recommendation.
