The giant Google confirmed in a post on its blog on September 2 that this security flaw is called “Zero Day”.

An anonymous source reported the issue on August 30th. Google expects the update to be rolled out to all users over the next few days and weeks.

The company has not yet released much information about the nature of the error that threatens computers running on PC, MAC or Linux.

It can be linked to Mojo’s “inadequate data validation”, a set of runtime libraries used by Chromium, the code base on which Google Chrome is built, and reported by The Verge.

An update named 105.0.5195.102 has been released to fix the issue.

The code name for the defect is CVE-2022-3075.

Experts urge you to update Google Chrome to the latest to ensure that you are browsing the web safely.

This latest update comes just days after Google Chrome version 105 was released on August 30th. This update is already accompanied by 24 security patches. Apparently, these reforms were not enough.

This is the zero-day vulnerability that Chrome has encountered so far this year, and the second occurred last April.

To update Chrome, you need to go to the About menu in Chrome.

You should then start downloading the new version available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
