Zero-day Chrome/Windows combo actively exploited in the wild

Share

Google Chrome's security lead, Justin Schuh, revealed the urgency of the situation this week when calling on users to update their browsers "right this minute". This API allows websites and other web-based services to read files stored on a user's computer. It may be used to install malicious software on a computer. The fix has already been released in the form of Chrome 72.0.3626.121 for Mac, Windows and Linux OS versions.

A serious vulnerability has been discovered in the browser that is actively exploited to trigger attacks on users' browsers.

A member of Google's Threat Analysis Group first reported the bug on February 27. With regard to the Chrome vulnerability, labeled "CVE-2019-5786", Google pushed out a software "update for all Chrome platforms on March 1". Well, after recognizing the security problem in the browser, the giant has now released a fresh Google Chrome update for the users. He later explained in a series of Tweets that it was necessary for Google to send out an alert broadly because a browser refresh is needed to update Chrome and apply the security protections. Google maintains access to bug details "restricted" so that the flaw can not be exploited.

Google has reported a vulnerability in Chrome and Microsoft Windows that hackers can exploit to gain access to your system. It seems that Opera was hit by this bugbear, too, so you need to make sure you're running the latest version 58.0.3135.90 of that browser.

Chrome users are urged to verify that their browser updated automatically by opening Chrome, going to the menu, and then clicking "About Google Chrome". Shared through their blog first, the threat named as CVE-2019-5786 and falls under high-severity. The browser is created to automatically update itself in many cases of a security issue, but this particular exploit can't be fixed until Chrome is manually restarted. If you'd like to trigger a manual update, you can click the three dots in the upper-right corner of the window, select "Help" and "About Chrome".
