For Chrome users, Google is releasing a critical update. Users should upgrade their browsers right away to avoid hackers from hacking their devices and collecting personal information, according to the tech giant.
The most recent version enhances security by fixing a zero-day vulnerability that hackers are reportedly exploiting. According to Google, the new Chrome version addresses at least five vulnerabilities, four of which are considered high-risk and one of which is critical.
The other four vulnerabilities have minimal information, but because they are classified “high,” you should take them carefully as well. In any case, you must install the update right now.
Here are the details of vulnerabilities Google highlighted:
— CVE-2021-4098: It’s a major vulnerability in Mojo due to poor data validation.
— CVE-2021-4099: It is a high-risk vulnerability in Swiftshader that is used after the free vulnerability.
— CVE-2021-4100: It’s a critical vulnerability in ANGLE that affects the object lifecycle.
— CVE-2021-4101: It’s a heap buffer overflow issue in Swiftshader that’s classified as high.
— CVE-2021-4102: This vulnerability in the V8 engine is categorized as high and utilized after free, and it has already been exploited.
The zero-day vulnerability does not appear to be present in Google Chrome for mobile or tablet devices. However, updating your browser to the newest version on all of your devices is recommended to keep your data safe and hackers at bay.
So, if your Chrome browser isn’t up to date, Google recommends that you do so right away. The Chrome browser should be updated to version 96.0.4664.110 after the update is completed. Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux users can get the update.
How to update the Google Chrome browser?
Step 1: Go to the Help and About area of the website.
Step 2: If an update is available, Google will either download it automatically or give you the opportunity to do so.
Step 3: After the update has finished downloading, press the Relaunch button. This will force the browser to restart.
The browser will automatically restart after the process is completed.
