Stop What You're Doing and Update Google Chrome

Chaouki Bekrar, CEO of exploit broker Zerodium, noted the bug was reportedly a remote code execution flaw that allowed malicious code to escape the Chrome sandbox, which would allow an attacker to compromise the operating system.

Today's blog post provides these much-needed details, with the company revealing the existence of the Windows 7 zero-day, which attackers were using together with the Chrome zero-day in coordinated attacks. As Chrome security engineer Justin Schuh explained in a series of tweets, the thing that makes this different from previous exploits that usually targeted Flash, is that the browser needs to be restarted for the fix to take effect.

Google Chrome's security lead has warned all the Chrome web browser (Windows, Mac, and Linux) users to update their applications to 72.0.3626.121 version immediately to protect themselves from a major security issue.

Although the auto-update feature in Chrome installs the new code, it does not mean that the effects are also enforced. In some cases, the Chrome update will download automatically. This week, Google revealed that the update corrects a "high" severity flaw-CVE-2019-5786-that has been under attack by cybercriminals.

"Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix". It's not safe to venture out there alone (or at least without the latest browser updates).

Those who are concerned can check their device is running the updated version of Google Chrome by opening a window and clicking on the three vertical dots in the right-hand corner. Google also says it is aware of the vulnerability being actively exploited in the wild.
