Google Chrome Ships Emergency Patches

Google has released emergency patches to address two security issues in its Chrome web browser, one of which it says is being actively exploited in the wild.

Tracked as CVE-2022-1364, the high-severity bug as a case of type confusion in the V8 JavaScript engine. Google acknowledged the bug and said it is aware of the exploit available public. As usual Google didn’t says the details of the bug.

With the latest fix, Google has patched a total of three zero-day vulnerabilities in Chrome since the start of the year. It’s also the second type confusion-related bug in V8 to be squashed in less than a month –

  • CVE-2022-0609 – Use-after-free in Animation
  • CVE-2022-1096 – Type confusion in V8

Its recommended to update 100.0.4896.127 version for Windows, Mac and Linux to thwart potential threats. Users of Chromium-based browsers such as Microsoft Edge, Brave, Opera, and Vivaldi are also advised to apply the fixes as and when they become available.
