Is Chrome a security risk?

Good post about Google Chrome

My lovely bride of 30 years worked from home yesterday, hoping to save our city some gas.

An e-mail came in from her administrator around mid-day which she decided to share with me. It told all users to shut down Chrome.

The e-mail called Chrome a security risk. It told all users within the company to use Firefox or Internet Explorer, to shut Chrome down. I don’t know how serious those concerns are. Without identifying my wife’s employer I will say it’s a conservative company, very security conscious, and often proactive. But this is a good time to ask how well Chrome is doing. Google Analytics says 1 in 40 visits to ZDNet Open Source are now done with Chrome. It’s currently on build 2200, Version (Click the wrench, then the About tab.)
