Google Chrome, touted as the world’s most popular browser (you’ve made it when your brand becomes a commonly-used noun), has issued patches for zero-day vulnerabilities that it or external researchers have identified as being exploited in the wild. Kudos to the research team at Google, as well as outside researchers who help identify vulnerabilities before they are widely exploited.
The four patches released include one designed to address a memory-corruption bug that was listed as high severity, and another described as an “information leak in core” that was listed as medium severity.
Patching any vulnerabilities discovered and issued by a manufacturer is an important part of an enterprise-wide information security program. Google’s security alert can be accessed here.
