Google Chrome on PC is getting an important security update this week for major security issue
This week, Google Chrome for personal computers will receive a critical security update. Users of Chrome for Windows, macOS, and Linux should immediately update to the most recent version of the browser. It is extremely important that you update because any insecure system could be hacked remotely, which is always a major worry for both customers and companies.
The security flaw that has prompted this upgrade is not fully explained by Google at this time, but the company has stated that customers should start receiving the updated version within the next few days or weeks. There are approximately ten upgrades that have been packaged by Google and are ready to be released; of these, six are classified as having high severity. The security flaw that affects the heap, which is a pre-defined space on the PC where some of the programs store their data, makes it possible for the attack to be carried out in a remote manner. This vulnerability was discovered in May of this year.
If you use Chrome on Windows, the version you need to get is 107.0.5304.106.107. With regard to the Chrome versions that users need to update, the Chrome security patch for Mac and Linux users will be 107.0.5304.110, and if you use Chrome on Mac or Linux, the version you need to get is 107.0.5304.110. Both of the patches will be distributed to users very soon. In addition, Google took advantage of this situation to express its gratitude to the researchers who contribute to its bug bounty program by assisting the company in locating issues such as these. The level of payment received is determined by the nature of the problem that is found and reported.
Chrome problems seem to recur on a fairly frequent basis, and already in 2018, there have been many incidences affecting users of Chrome on both mobile devices and personal computers. Chrome for Android reported a significant problem back in July, and as a result, an update was sent to address the problem. People with Android phones running Chrome version 103.0.506.71 were told to install the new patch as soon as possible to fix the problem.
