Chrome users on Windows, Mac, and Linux have received a new security update from Google. The update includes critical security patches for two zero-day vulnerabilities. Threat actors were actively exploiting the security flaws in the wild, according to Google.
The upgrade, “Chrome 95.0.4638.69,” is being sent out over the next several days or weeks. It is available to Windows, Mac, and Linux devices. The two critical security patches – CVE-2021-38000 and CVE-2021-38003 – are in a Google security advisory about the upgrade. “We are aware that exploits for CVE-2021-38000 and CVE-2021-38003 exist in the wild,” Google states.
This implies that some hackers are already aware of Chrome’s security flaws. Also, it looks like many hackers have used it to compromise computers or spread malware. Google hasn’t released any further information about the dangers because it wants Chrome users all across the globe to upgrade to the current version, which solves the problems.
As a result, the changes are both necessary and urgent for users. Chrome users should expect to see it on their browsers in the coming weeks now that the distribution has begun. Users may manually check for it by going to the Chrome menu (three vertical dots on the top right) and selecting Help > About Google Chrome. Your current version will be shown, and you’ll be able to see if an update for the version you’re using is available.
If this is the case, users can upgrade their browser to the latest version and relaunch the web browser to see the changes. Stay tuned to Tha Sports Junkies for all the latest news.
