Google Reveals There Is A Dangerous Vulnerability In Chrome, Threatening 2 Billion Users
Rancakmedia.com – Google says there is a Dangerous Crack in Chrome affecting more than 2 billion users. This information comes from Google who posted it on their own blog. Chrome alone is now in use 2.65 billion which means it may be significant for hackers through this vulnerability
Google released news indicating Chrome's 11th 'zero day' exploit of the year has been discovered. The vulnerability code CVE-2021-37973 affects Linux, macOS and Windows users.
The 'zero day' designation implies that hackers were able to exploit the vulnerability before Google issued a patch. This is far more dangerous than most security vulnerabilities, as quoted by Forbes, Tuesday (28/9/2021).
Google has verified this and says it is "aware that an exploit for CVE-2021-37973 exists in the wild."
In an effort to protect users and give them time to make additional changes, Google keeps information about CVE-2021-37973 confidential.
The most recent zero-day is another 'Use-After-Free' (UAF) vulnerability. Forbes says this has proven a useful route for hackers in recent months.

In response, Google has issued a workaround. The company claims all Chrome users will receive it simultaneously. But to check if Chrome is safe, you can check in Settings > Help > About Google Chrome.
If your Chrome version is 94.0.4606.61 or higher, you're safe. If an update is not yet available for your browser, keep checking for new versions frequently.
