Way of recording video streams playing through Google Chrome has been discovered by two security researchers , which has the potential to turn Google’s web browser into a pirate’s wet dream.
Google has been made aware of the issue, but hasn’t yet issued a patch fixing the flaw.
According to Wired, David Livshits of the Ben-Gurion University in Israel and Alexandra Mikityuk of Telekom Innovatio Laboratories in Berlin, discovered the flaw, and posted the above video demonstrating it in action.
The problem stems from Google’s use of Widevine, the digital rights management (DRM) system which has been implemented into Chrome. 90 days is how long Google’s Project Zero team gives other developers to patch flaws they discover.
