Google asks users to update versions amid new bug detect
Google has found a new vulnerability post which it has been asking users on Windows, macOS, and Linux to update Chrome builds to version 99.0.4844.84. The update is available for Chrome via version 99.0.4844.84 on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
One can head over to the three-dot button on the top-right of Chrome and navigate to Help > About Google Chrome to trigger the update.
Earlier, in its first big security update for the new year, Google rolled out 37 fixes for Windows, Mac, and Linux and one of which was rated critical.
Highlighting that the exploit is being utilized in the wild and Google is aware of it, the company said in a statement, “We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third-party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.”
The company said, “We would also like to thank all security researchers that worked with us during the development cycle to prevent security bugs from ever reaching the stable channel.”
Meanwhile, Microsoft issued its own notice saying the issue was fixed in Edge version 99.0.1150.55 released the same day. According to Google, 22 types of security fixes have been given in the latest Chrome browser, which works to increase user privacy.
It also recently updated the Chrome stable channel to 96.0.4664.93 for Windows, Mac, and Linux, which is available for all users.
