Google wants users to update Chrome browsers as quickly as possible, here’s why

0 29


Google has issued an update for Chrome on Mac, Linux and Windows to patch a security vulnerability that was actively exploited by hackers. Researchers from Google’s Threat Analysis Group discovered a zero-day vulnerability in the browser on November 24.

“We would also like to thank all security researchers that worked with us during the development cycle to prevent security bugs from ever reaching the stable channel,” the company said.

This is the sixth zero-day vulnerability in the browser this year and Google started rolling out the security patch to fix it. This issue has ‘high’ security severity and the bug is tracked as CVE-2023-6345.

“Google is aware that an exploit for CVE-2023-6345 exists in the wild,” the company said in the patch notes.

How to check browser version
Those who have automatic updates enabled for Google Chrome may not need to take any action. To manually check for an update, users can go to Google Chrome settings, click the About Chrome tab, and click Update Google Chrome.

If there isn’t an option to update, you are either on the latest version or the update will roll out in the coming days.

Chrome users on macOS and Linux will get version 119.0.6045.199, while users on Windows will get either version 119.0.6045.199 or 119.0.6045.200.

“Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed,” Google said.
