12. April 2022 –
There are currently several security gaps in Chrome, which Google now wants to eliminate with version 100.0.4896.88 of the browser. Some of the vulnerabilities allow attackers to execute malicious code.
As Google announced in its own blog, Chrome version 100.0.4896.88 is currently being rolled out. The reason for this are eleven security gaps that gape in the browser. Eight of these are classified as having a high security risk. Chrome users are strongly advised to apply the update as soon as it becomes available on their machines, as some of the leaks affect the browser’s memory management and allow potential attackers to execute malicious code on a target machine. This is another reason why Google is keeping a low profile on the background to the security gaps.
As Google further explains, the Chrome update to version 100.0.4896.88 for Windows, Mac and Linux will be rolled out in the next few days and weeks. And as always, the latest Chrome version is also available for download in our freeware library. (luc)
