Google has released a new stable update for Chrome users running on Windows, Mac, and Linux. The update includes critical security patches for two zero-day security vulnerabilities. Google verified that the security flaws were being actively exploited in the wild by malicious attackers.
Titled “Chrome 95.0.4638.69”, the update will be rolled out to Windows, Mac and Linux systems over the coming days or weeks. In a security note that Google has shared on the update, the tech major mentions the two crucial security fixes – CVE-2021-38000 and CVE-2021-38003. Google says that it is “aware that exploits for CVE-2021-38000 and CVE-2021-38003 exist in the wild.”
This means that some hackers are already aware of Chrome’s security flaws and have used it to hack networks or spread malware. Google hasn’t released any further information about the risks because it first wants Chrome users all across the globe to update to the current version, which fixes these problems.
