Chrome patched again this time for 3 vulnerabilities including one Zero day. Patches for this zero-day have been released part of Chrome version 80.0.3987.122. The update is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux users, but not Chrome OS, iOS, and Android.
The zero-day is tracked under the identifier of CVE-2020-6418, and is described only as a “type confusion in V8.”
A ttype confusion refers to coding bugs during which an app initializes data execution operations using input of a specific “type” but is tricked into treating the input as a different “type.”
The “type confusion” leads to logical errors in the app’s memory and can lead to situations where an attacker can run unrestricted malicious code inside an application.
