Immediately check if your Google Chrome browser has been updated


Google has patched a serious security hole that is being actively exploited by hackers.

Recently, it seems that Google Chrome, which owns 65% of the browser market, has been hit hard, as malware was recently found in several popular extensions of the software, and before that the program had to be patched out of sequence due to a serious security hole.

If all that wasn’t enough, another emergency update was now necessary after an anonymous user reported a backdoor that hackers are actively exploiting.

A Registered as CVE-2022-3075a vulnerability characterized as high risk by Google for the time being that’s all he saidthat the runtime libraries used by Chrome (Mojo) related to the authentication of your data. The search giant will later provide detailed information about the problem, but before that, it wants as many people as possible to update, avoiding wider exploitation of the vulnerability.

Before continuing browsing, it is therefore a good idea to check whether the automatic update has done its job for us as well. To do this, you have to click on the three dots in the upper right corner, then select in the drop-down menu Help > About Google Chrome opportunity. If you see the version number 105.0.5195.102 (both Windows, Mac and Linux), there is nothing further to do.
