Oops!, Google slipped and had to reissue a new security patch for its Web browser Chrome to prevent a batch of crashes that turned up as well.
Chrome version 188.8.131.52 was released Tuesday in an effort to fix one critical security problem and one high-severity one. On Thursday, came 184.108.40.206 to fix a crash during startup that affected “a small percentage of users,” said Chrome Program Manager Mark Larson.
With the first problem, an attacker under some circumstances could run attack software with the same privilege as the computer user.
With the second, an issue handling 2D graphics could potentially allow a specially crafted image to crash a tab and run an attacker’s code within Chrome’s sandbox security isolation system.
Google recommends that all Chrome users upgrade their Chrome browser to version 220.127.116.11, the download link is indicated at the bottom of this post. Good Day.
