Google Chrome, the most widely used web browser in the world, has dozens of security flaws that put millions of users at risk. Fortunately, these security flaws have just been patched, and Google is now advising users to update their browsers in order to stay secure.
India Today reports that after fixing more than 27 vulnerabilities, Google has encouraged users to update Chrome. The American software business soon discovered 11 other security flaws in the browser, which is why it is now advising users to update right away.
Update Chrome to at least version 104.0.5112.102/101 on Windows and 104.0.5112.101 on Mac and Linux, according to Google’s advice.
According to Google, 11 of these flaws are “critical,” six are “high sensitivity,” and only three are “mid severity.” However, attackers are already making use of this critical security flaw, which might give them access to your system and allow them to run arbitrary code. Google has had to repair five zero-day vulnerabilities so far this year.
CVE-2022-2856 is the name of this bug, and Google has acknowledged that there may already be a predator someplace. Users are therefore encouraged to upgrade their Google Chrome browsers on computers right away.

Google Chrome is quite simple to update. Simply locate and click on the vertical line of three dots in the top right corner. By doing this, a drop-down menu with a “Help” section near the bottom will open. You can then click “About Google Chrome” to be taken directly to the update page.
An automatic update will begin, and after it is finished, you must restart your browser.
