Google patched critical 0-day in Chrome

Posted on Thursday, March 07 2019 @ 16:10 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Google Chrome security lead engineer Justin Schuh warns users to upgrade as soon as possible to the latest version of the browser. The version you need is 72.0.3626.121 (or later), otherwise you're at risk of a critical vulnerability (CVE-2019-5786) that is exploited in the wild.

At the moment, Google isn't sharing any details about the bug:
Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.

Normally, your Chrome browser should update automatically to the latest version. But you can check or speed up the process via the Help - About Google Chrome menu.
