Google releases urgent Chrome update

Google has released an extraordinary, emergency security update for the proprietary Chrome browser.


Update 100.0.4896.127 for Windows, macOS and Linux resolves a serious zero-day vulnerability CVE-2022-1364 that is actively exploited by attackers.

CVE-2022-1364 is a vulnerability in the Chrome V8 JavaScript engine that cybercriminals can use to execute arbitrary code.

The vulnerability was discovered by Clement Lesin of the Google Threat Intelligence Team. The company notes that details will be “limited until most users receive a fix.”
