After the release of Google Chrome 105, many other manufacturers of Chromium-based browsers followed suit and also provided updates to fix several vulnerabilities.
On August 30, Google released the new major version 105 of its Chrome browser. In it, Google developers
24 vulnerabilities fixed
, including one vulnerability (CVE-2022-3038) classified as critical. Many manufacturers of Chromium-based browsers have now followed suit and updated their software. So far these are Brave, Microsoft (Edge), and Vivaldi. With Opera, it takes a little longer again.
It was again the fastest response and released an update to version 5.4.2753.45 on August 31st. However, this is based on Chromium version 104.0.5112.112 of the Extended Stable Channel. However, the relevant security vulnerabilities have been eliminated. So Vivaldi sticks to its practice of skipping individual Chromium releases (like 105) over the past few months.
He made his browser available the next day with the updated version 1.43.88. Like Google Chrome, it is based on Chromium 105, but it is already on the latest version 105.0.5195.68. The update to Brave 1.43.88 also brings several bug fixes and improvements.
Also on September 1, Microsoft released an update for
It was published to version 105.0.1343.25. It is based on Chromium 105.0.5195.54, the same as Chrome. With the new Edge release, Microsoft has one too
(CVE-2022-38012) Closed. The entered code can exit the browser’s sandbox. However, according to Microsoft, the attacker must first “take additional measures to prepare the target environment” in order to be able to exploit the vulnerability. Microsoft left what this concretely means open.
As is often the case, take your time. The new Opera version 90.0.4480.80 as of September 1st still has Chromium 104.0.5112.102 as of August 16th. Opera 91 based on Chromium 105 is still in beta testing stage.
Google Chrome 106 will launch on September 27th.
