Last October, Google released an urgent update for Chrome needed to fix a particularly dangerous flaw. In these hours the situation repeats itself following the discovery of another zero-day vulnerabilitypromptly resolved by the Big G with a fix available in a new update.
The security issue has officially been resolved with an emergency update for the desktop version of the Chrome web browser; it is, however, the eighth zero-day vulnerability discovered on Chrome during 2022. The flaw is known as CVE-2022-4135 and was discovered on Nov. 22 by Google’s Threat Analysis Group.
As reported by Bleeping Computersat the moment Google holds hidden details about the vulnerability to prevent its exploitation as the update spreads across consumer systems: “Access to details of the bug will be limited until most users update their browser with the official fix. We will maintain these restrictions if the bug is found on third parties where it has not yet been fixed”writes the company.
We therefore recommend Chrome users to update to version 107.0.5304.121/122 for Windows and 107.0.5304.122 for Mac and Linux. To do that is enough go to Settings and then to About Chromewhere the download and installation process will happen automatically.
Still speaking of Google Chrome, in mid-November the browser saw a taste of the Material You design.
