Google urges Chrome users to update browser immediately

20-08-2022

NEW YORK: Google has asked its users to update their browsers after it fixed 27 security vulnerabilities, media reported.

The company is urging users to update browsers immediately because it has found 11 more security vulnerabilities in Google Chrome.

In its recent blog post, Google announced the details of the latest update saying that the new Chrome version 104.0.5112.102/101 was for Windows and 104.0.5112.101 for Mac and Linux.

Out of 11 security vulnerabilities, the company labelled one as “critical”, six as “high-severity” and the rest three as “medium-severity”.

Google did not share many details about the critical issues. It admitted however that CVE-2022-2856 might have a predator out there somewhere.

This means hackers are out there ready to use the bug for crimes. Therefore, the update that is now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, is being strongly encouraged.

How to update your browser?

Find three dots on the top-right corner of the browser. Then go to Help where you will find About Google Chrome. From there, move to “allow Chrome to look for the new update”.

Click on “relaunch” to install the update. In a few seconds, the browser will be updated. (Int’l News Desk)
