Serious security flaws found in Google Chrome browser.
Make sure you’re using the latest version of Google Chrome, otherwise your device could be at risk.
An update of Google Chrome for desktop fixes three security vulnerabilities that could leave the browser at risk. If you use this browser on Windows, Mac or Linux, you need to make sure it’s up to date.
Two of the bugs were detected by Mozilla, which produces the competing browser Firefox, while the third was discovered by Google. Details of the bugs and the threat they pose are being restricted until a majority of users have updated their browsers.
Google hasn’t confirmed whether the vulnerabilities also affect Android, iOS and Chrome OS, but there are currently no browser updates for these platforms.
The fix is applied by updating Google Chrome to version 80.0.3987.122 or higher.
Chrome automatically looks for updates. If one is available, you’ll be prompted to relaunch. However, it pays to check your version in case the update has failed.
