Chrome Critical Vulnerabilities: You must update immediately

Serious security vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Chrome browser, which Google has attached to the latest version. So you should update as soon as possible.

Google Chrome is the first browser and therefore it is particularly attractive to cybercriminals. Thus there is an ongoing cat-and-mouse game between hackers and browser developers.

The good news: With the latest release of Google Chrome, four security vulnerabilities classified as critical have been closed. Therefore, you must update the software immediately to protect yourself from attacks:

Software vulnerabilities aren’t surprising in themselves, as resourceful hackers are constantly finding new ways to circumvent bans. But ideally, manufacturers are faster, as in this case.

Developers have named four very serious vulnerabilities in Google Chrome:

  1. CVE-2023-4430
  2. CVE-2023-4429
  3. CVE-2023-4428
  4. CVE-2023-4427

For the first two, which affected the Vulkan and Loader interfaces, the code has already accessed shared resources. This can be used to inject malicious code, for example by using a fake website. Recent vulnerabilities have affected CSS accesses outside of their intended memory regions and in the JavaScript 8 engine.

These and other minor security vulnerabilities and bugs are fixed by downloading and updating to the latest version of Google Chrome.

Even if you are using the relevant Chromium-based browsers, it is best to keep an eye on updates, as Edge, Brave, and other browsers are also affected.
