Google issues urgent warning to billions of Chrome users after finding 26 security flaws – check YOUR browser now

GOOGLE has found 26 new security flaws affecting Chrome users, just weeks after issuing an urgent update for previous vulnerabilities.

A warning has been issued to Chrome users as new vulnerabilities have been found just weeks after the last urgent update was issued.

More than 2billion people use Google Chrome, according to Forbes.

In a blog post published on January 19, Google alerted Chrome users of the 26 new vulnerabilities.

While only one was listed as being critically dangerous, 15 were labeled as "high risk."

This means that there is a greater threat risk to users who have not updated their systems.

Linux, macOS, and Windows users are most at-risk, according to Forbes.

These users are encouraged to update their Chrome browsers as soon as possible.

In the last update that was issued just weeks ago on January 4, 38 vulnerabilities had been found.

Eleven of those were deemed "high risk" by the company, with one being critically dangerous, according to the Google blog post.

Previously, Google would share details of the threats and their solutions.

However, with the latest vulnerabilities found, the company is being more tight-lipped when it comes to explanations.

A note in the January 19 blog post reads: "Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix."

Forbes noted that many of the vulnerabilities listed are ‘Use-After-Free’ (UAF).

These vulnerabilities are exploits created when a program does not clear the pointer to the memory after it is freed. 

UAF exploits are popular among Google hackers, as many of the previous threats have been similar.

Google experienced a record-breaking number of vulnerabilities and attacks in 2021, Forbes reports.

For this reason, it's important to keep your Chrome browser up-to-date to lower your threat risk.
