Chrome fixes an exploited security flaw


Chrome users are encouraged to update their browser, if it has not already retrieved the latest update on its own.

Version 100.0.4896.127, distributed for a few days for macOS, Windows and Linux, corrects two security flaws. One of them, warns Google, is being actively exploited.

The publisher did not provide all the details – simply that it originated in the JavaScript V8 engine and that it can give control over data – preferring to wait until the majority of Chrome users are up to date.

In March as well as in February, Google had corrected flaws of the same severity, one of which also affected the JavaScript engine. At the start of the year, the publisher reported use of these flaws by groups of North Korean hackers who primarily targeted American companies and groups.
