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."

It was hardly in Chrome, it was actually in Flash. But because of the way Flash is build they had to warp it in a 'weaker sandbox' than their normal sandbox.

Also this was on Windows, not sure what effect it would have had on Linux.
