    Google Chrome can listen to your conversations


    Be careful what you say when visiting voice-controlled websites on Google Chrome. Recently, a security expert discovered that malefactors could leverage the browser's voice-recognition abilities to invade users' privacy, but Google has yet to implement his recommended fix.

    Tal Ater, the Israeli programmer behind the "annyang!" speech-recognition script for websites, discovered the vulnerability last September. He submitted a report through the proper Google channels, and received a response right away that engineers were addressing the issue.

    However, even though Google has a solution ready, the company has yet to implement it.
