Google Chrome users are being warned about a major threat; find out how to stay safe

Following the discovery of serious exploits, over 2 billion Google Chrome users around the world were encouraged to upgrade their browsers immediately. As a result of this attack, nearly all Google Chrome users are at danger of having their accounts compromised. Following the discovery of a new zero-day vulnerability in Google Chrome, the company verified the breach in a blog post. The CVE-2021-30563 vulnerability, which is a zero-day insecurity, has already been warned about, and now another vulnerability has been brought to light that is just as deadly, if not more so, than the previous one. This vulnerability has the identification number CVE-2021-37973. The company stated on its blog that "Google is aware of the existence of CVE-2021-37973 exploitation in the wild."

Known as zero-day exploitation, fraudsters are able to take advantage of Google before the company is aware of it and can supply Google Chrome with a remedy to prevent it from happening in the first place. Also, when you consider that there are 2.65 billion Google Chrome users worldwide, you may get a sense of the magnitude of the problem.

Because of Google's blog post addressing Google Chrome infringement, it was found by Google workers rather than by third parties, which was the most significant result of the incident. And, perhaps most crucially, all users must upgrade to Google Chrome as soon as possible, and the sooner they do so, the better for everyone. Google also supplied the threat of exploitation in the form of perception or ranking in the search results.

"High CVE-2021-37973: Free use in the portal," according to a blog post by Google. The threat ranking has been published. Clement Lesigne from Google TAG reported the issue on September 21, 2021, with technical assistance from Sergei Glazunov and Mark Brand from Google Project Zero."

"We would like to thank all of the security researchers who collaborated with us throughout the development cycle in order to ensure that security flaws never made it to the stable channel," says one of the nice parts.

Here’s how to check if your Google Chrome browser is protected

  • Navigate to the settings menu.
  • Click on the Help option
  • Then go to Google Chrome
  • Check the version of Google Chrome that you are using.
  • Those who are using Google Chrome version 94.0.4606.61 or higher are not vulnerable.
  • If you do not have this version, you will have to wait until it becomes available.
