The latest version fixes serious security flaws
Google’s latest update to the Chrome browser contains patches for vulnerabilities that, if exploited, could allow remote hijackers to take control over the user’s device. According to publicly available alerts, an attacker could run malicious code simply by tricking victims into just opening a specially crafted Web page on the affected Chrome browser. The security flaws affect Chrome for Windows and Mac. Google says it won’t disclose any further details until most users have updated their browsers.
To get the vulnerabilities patched, you need to update Google Chrome:
- Simply restarting Chrome should suffice. After that, to make sure everything’s up to date, you can click the three stacked dots in the top right corner (called Customize and Control Google Chrome), then Help → About Google Chrome. If the number you see there is 77.0.3865.90 (or higher), then Chrome is up to date. If not, Chrome will start searching for available updates (you’ll see a spinning circle) and in a moment the number of the latest available version will be displayed; click Relaunch.
