The new version of Google Chrome is available today, and Google recommends that all browser users download it to their computers as soon as possible. It is an update that aims to resolve a serious security vulnerability found in the previous version that some cyber attackers may have “exploited”.
Google itself was responsible for warning about the threat posed by a vulnerability in the previous version of Google Chrome for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
This is a “zero-day” vulnerability. In other words, developers are not given a chance to fix it before hackers can exploit the vulnerability. For this reason, Chrome version 119.0.6045.199 has been decided for Mac and Linux and Chrome version 119.0.6045.200 for Windows. These releases fix an “integer overflow” problem in the open source Skia graphics library used by Google Chrome.
It is especially important that all Chrome users download the latest version available for their computers, as the engineering team behind the browser has confirmed an exploit that takes advantage of this vulnerability and could compromise the integrity of devices.
Until most Chrome users upgrade to the latest version, Google will not disclose more information about the vulnerability to prevent new threats from developing.
It’s worth noting that the iOS and Android versions of Chrome don’t seem to be affected by this bug, but it’s still recommended to keep the browser updated to the latest version to avoid other issues.
Remember that to update the ROM browser you need to go to this section: chrome://settings/help Or download it from the following link: Chrome
