Google Chrome is under attack: update right now

- Advertisement -

Google Chrome is under attack on Windows and Android. The latest security hole in WebRTC has a freely circulating exploit, so you don’t want to browse without installing the patch. This is what you need to know.

The zero-day security hole involves a buffer overflow in WebRTC, a real-time communication standard supported by all major browsers. It is used to create audio and video communication applications on websites.

Google has not provided details about the bug and will not do so until most Google Chrome users have installed the security patch. It is classified as “high” severity. It is very possible that you allow a malicious website to take control of your PC.

The good news is that there is already a fix in the form of Google Chrome version 103.0.5060.114 for Windows and (Chrome 103.0.5060.71 on Android). Google Chrome will install updates automatically, but it can take up to 24 hours for the browser to install them and Chrome won’t automatically restart after installing an update; It will ask you to restart your browser.

At a time when an exploit is circulating online, you don’t want to browse without updating. We recommend installing the update immediately and restarting Chrome without waiting for the automatic process.

To do this on Windows, click the menu button in the upper right corner of the Chrome browser window and select Help > About Google Chrome. (On Android, you’ll need to update Chrome from the Play Store.)

Google Chrome will automatically check for and install the update (if it hasn’t already been installed), and you’ll see a progress indicator. When Chrome has finished installing the update, click the “Relaunch” button.

Installing Chrome security update 103.

That’s it – your Chrome browser is now up to date. If you want to be sure it’s secure, check that the version number is at least 103.0.5060.114 after restarting Chrome. (If Chrome doesn’t offer you the update and you have a lower version number, check back later; it may take some time to roll out. That’s up to Google.)
