Google Issues Emergency Security Update For 3.2 Billion Chrome Users—Attacks Underway

Update your Chrome Browser ASAP!

Google has issued an emergency security update for all Chrome users as it confirms that attackers are already exploiting a high severity zero-day vulnerability.

The emergency update to version 99.0.4844.84 of Chrome is highly unusual in that it addresses just a single security vulnerability. A fact that only goes to emphasize how serious this one is.

In a Chrome stable channel update announcement, published March 25, Google confirms it “is aware that an exploit for CVE-2022-1096 exists in the wild.”

All Chrome users are therefore advised to ensure their browsers are updated as a matter of urgency.
