Chrome 97 closes 37 security holes

Google rates one vulnerability as critical, and the risk for others as high.

Google released Chrome 97 for desktop (Windows, macOS, Linux). In version 97.0.4692.71, the developers have patched 37 vulnerabilities, one of which Google classifies as critical (CVE-2022-0096). The risk is classified as high for ten security vulnerabilities and medium for another ten.

Google lists in Chrome release blog entry 24 externally reported vulnerabilities, no details are given for the remaining 13. Google is quite reluctant to give details. Among other things, the release states: “Access to error details and links can be restricted until a majority of users have been updated with a correction.” Although Google does not write whether the critical loophole is already being exploited, it makes sense to quickly check whether your Chrome version has already been updated.

How to manually update Chrome

Most browsers update automatically by default. To start the update manually, click on the Three point symbol, go to help and there you choose Via Google Chrome.
