Google Chrome update

Highlights:

  • Google is releasing the Chrome latest version 92.0.4515.131 with much-improved features.
  • These features will help you to avoid security lapses.
  • Google Chrome users need to update to the latest version to avoid any type of hacking or data theft.

Google is rolling out a massive update with security fixes for Chrome, one of which fixes the zero-day exploit in its V8 JavaScript engine. The exploit allowed threat actors to gain access to a victim’s data by running malicious software. This is now the ninth zero-day exploit that Google has fixed. The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has issued an advisory asking users to immediately update their browsers to version 92.

CERT-In Advisory states:

“These vulnerabilities exist in Google Chrome due to heap buffer overflow error in Bookmarks. The remote attackers can take advantage of these errors through a specially crafted document to carry out the hacking. If the remote attacker succeeds, he can easily hack the system and execute his intentions”.

New Features :

  • Google is now disabling full URLs from fake websites for users’ safety. Now the big URLs of any site will not be visible, only their name will be seen. A disabled option will also be given in this feature. In Google Chrome 92, users will no longer see prompts and notifications on the website. This feature can also be disabled.
  • The new update will give a good AR and gaming experience on Chrome. Chrome browser will come with Lite mode. Meaning if you use Chrome on mobile, the page will load soon.
