Google Chrome Crashes with All Tabs

Software:

Google Chrome Browser 0.2.149.27

 

Tested:

Windows XP Professional SP3

 

Result:

Google Chrome Crashes with All Tabs

 

Problem:

An issue exists in how chrome behaves with undefined-handlers in chrome.dll version

0.2.149.27. A crash can result without user interaction. When a user is made to visit

a malicious link, which has an undefined handler followed by a 'special' character,

the chrome crashes with a Google Chrome message window "Whoa! Google Chrome has crashed.

Restart now?". It lies in dealing with the POP EBP instruction when pointed out by the

EIP register at 0x01002FF4.
