Cesar Cerrudo has discovered a vulnerability in Google Chrome, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information.

The vulnerability is caused due to the application following redirects for stylesheets and allowing to read the target URL. This can be exploited on sites that use redirects to URLs containing potentially sensitive information e.g. within the query string.

This is related to vulnerability #8 in:
SA28758

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 3.0.195.38 and 4.0.249.78. Other versions may also be affected.

I have tested this exploit in Google Chrome 4.0.249.89 and it has no effect. I tested with microsoft.com, yahoo.com, planetquake.com and other websites. They all resolved to the original LINK tag and not the final URL. This problem seems to have been corrected.
