O Google Chrome now has a new update. It was launched by big tech as a response to a security vulnerabilityconsidered to be high gravity and known as CVE-2022-3075.
The fragility was extensively exploited and Google claimed to be aware of the reports. An anonymous security researcher alerted the company. Now, the update is already released for desktop browser users for both Windows and Linux and Mac.
However, the company said it will not yet provide more information about the vulnerability or how it worked. The main reason is for cybercriminals not to take advantage of the flaw while the user base is not fully updated.
A report by Google’s Threat Analysis Group says state hackers from North Korea have attempted to launch state-sponsored attacks using a Chrome zero-day remote code execution vulnerability.
Since the beginning of this year, Google has fixed six zero-day browser crashes. They are: CVE-2022-0609, CVE-2022-1096, CVE-2022-1364, CVE-2022-2294 and CVE-2022-2856.
