Update Google Chrome to avoid hacking

There are many security holes in Google Chrome that put millions of people around the world in danger except for the update. These holes became set not too long ago, and Google is telling everyone to make sure they are safe by updating their browsers to the latest version.

After fixing more than 27 vulnerabilities, Google has recommended that Chrome users update. Shortly after that, an American software company found eleven more security holes in the browser and told all users they needed to upgrade right away.

Chrome users on Windows should update to version 104.0.5112.102/101. Those on Mac OS X and Linux should use version 104.0.5112.101. Google recommends doing these steps.

Google says that 11 of these bugs are “critical,” 6 are “high sensitivity,” and 3 are “mid severity.” But attackers are already taking advantage of this major security flaw. Which can let them run any code on your system and take control of it. This is Google’s fifth fix for a zero-day vulnerability so far in 2018.

For this CVE-2022-2856 vulnerability, Google has said that a predator may already exist out there. Because of this, everyone who uses a computer should quickly update their Google Chrome browsers.

Things to Change

Chrome updates are simple and can do quickly. To do this, look for a button in the upper right corner with three dots in a row and click it. When you do this, a drop-down menu will appear with the “Help” option. Just click “About Google Chrome” to go straight to the page where you can update. When the update is done, you will need to restart your browser.
