Chrome 27.0.1453.116 for Windows, Macintosh and Chrome Frame platforms addresses the security hole that attackers could use to trick users into allowing them to access the target’s webcam and microphone.

A proof-of-concept published by security researcher Egor Homakov showed an attacker could trick users into pressing the “Allow” button in the Flash Player settings window.

The Flash plugin clickjacking vulnerability fixed in the latest version of Chrome allowed an attacker to make the settings window transparent.
