Google "Google Chrome OS is designed around the concept of "expendable" terminals that you can lose, drop or simply throw away without fear of losing your data, which is safely stored into the cloud. [However, one] thing is certain, with all your data being available into the cloud, in one place, available 24/7 through a fast internet link, this will be a goldmine for cybercriminals. All that is necessary here is to get hold of the authentication tokens required to access the cloud account."

If you're talking about the exploit by that French "security company" who refuses to show any proof of their claim nor have any plans to tell Google what it is instead selling their exploit to the highest bidder, well that is a bunch of horsecrap.
That's not saying Chrome won't have issues but this is probably not it.
