(SURFCHROME.COM) - Liu Die Yu of the research lab Topsec TianRonXin in Beijing reports of a spoofing vulnerability within Google Chrome allowing for attackers to imitate or "spoof" the address bar or URL of legitimate sites such as Paypal, Citibank, and eBay.

Liu Die Yu created a proof of concept exhibiting how he can make the Google Chrome URL to appear as www.bbb.org while visiting a different site under his control.  Google representatives report that this is a "known issue" to be fixed in future versions.  Development version 0.3.154.3 available on the Dev Channel is known to resolve this issue.
