Google is rolling out a new update for Chrome that fixes three security holes that are considered to be high in security. The firm recommends to carry out the last update on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Chrome is the Internet access point for millions of users, making it a prime target for hackers. Vulnerabilities are regularly detected. Chrome 80 fixed for example not less than 56 security vulnerabilities in addition to the new features introduced by the new version of the browser. In the last security note published on his blog on February 24, 2020, Google announces it has fixed three new critical flaws.
For security reasons, the team does not provide many details on the vulnerabilities in question. Access to bug details and links was limited until the majority of users were up to date. The firm notes that one of the flaws that carry the reference CVE-2020-6418 is already exploited by attackers, urgently to pass the latest version of chrome (80.0.3987.122) which includes the necessary fixes.
The three flaws are rated a high level of danger. Two of them were discovered internally and the third by an external researcher who was awarded $ 5,000. Although we don't have more details on these vulnerabilities, it would not be the first time that Google has deployed patches of its kind.
Last December, 5 critical security holes were patched in Chrome. These pins could be exploited to execute malicious code remotely, or even to steal your personal data.
