“Anyone can make any one’s website vulnerable for Chrome by simply pasting the malicious URL to his site.

I just tried [B]http://aaa.com/%00[/B] on my Ubuntu machine, and it crashed my Chrome. Perhaps it’s because of my version (14.04, 32-bit version)?

When I started Chrome from the terminal, and crashed it, I saw the word “Aborted” in my terminal, so I guess the program received (presumably from itself) Unix signal 6.
