By Click&Clean - Wednesday, November 2, 2022. Earlier last week, on Tuesday 25 October, Google released a new stable version 107 of its Chrome web browser for all supported desktop and mobile operating systems.
The web browser update fixes 14 different security issues, including 4 high-risk flaws, 6 assessed as medium-risk issues, and 4 bugs that are rated low-risk security vulnerabilities. These security patches prevent scammers from gaining access to users' sensitive information, prevent remote attackers from executing arbitrary code on the system if a user visits a specially crafted malicious web page, and much more.
To check and install the security updates and protect your devices against potential exploits, it is recommended that you update your Chrome web browser as soon as possible. Clicking the button below will take you to the "Browser Update Checker" page, where you can update your web browser immediately.
Successful exploitation of this security bug allows a remote cyber-attacker to read sensitive information of other applications, cause crashes, or execute arbitrary and malicious code on the target system to gain complete control over the user's computer. Google notes that it is aware of reports of the vulnerability being exploited in the wild.
This is the seventh Chrome zero-day vulnerability patched by Google since the beginning of the year.
Make sure your Google Chrome web browser is updated to the latest stable version 107.0.5304.87/.88 on Windows and 107.0.5304.87 on Mac and Linux to stay protected from potential cyber-attacks.
