Google Chrome’s harmonious revises have long been a huge fraction of its appeal. However, this may change. With the latest edition of Chrome already established on hundreds of millions of computers and smartphones around the globe, a substantial threat has been handed out that you might not appreciate what it was running inside.
According to a blog post, Google has verified three “High” level vulnerabilities within Chrome 80, one of which (CVE-2020-6418) is a zero-day exploit that “exists in the wild.” This makes sticking on the new edition of Chrome a sudden threat.
In reaction, Google has published Chrome 80.0.3987.122 with patches for all three exploits and users around the globe should be obtaining update warnings in their browsers presently.
Furthermore, if you haven’t, you can activate the update procedure manually by going to the three-dot menu in the top right corner of Chrome > Help > About Google Chrome.
This is Chrome’s third zero-day vulnerability in a year which is a relatively low number. Although, when they arrive, they need to be taken seriously.
So, if you are the type of person who generally dismisses Chrome’s nagging when updates come along, today is a day you really need to pay extreme attention.
So bravo to Google for acknowledging this and reacting efficiently. However, if you’re reading this certain piece of news in Chrome, you now need to do the same.
