Google has released stable version of Chrome 105, which comes with patches for 24 vulnerabilities, including 13 use-after-free and heap buffer overflow bugs.

21 of the bugs were reported by external researchers, including 1-critical, 8-high, 9-medium, and 3-low severity vulnerabilities.


Out of 9 use-after-free issues, the most important is a critical flaw in the Network Service component, reported by Google Project Zero researchers.

Next set is of use-after-free vulnerabilities, impacting browser components such as WebSQL, Layout, PhoneHub, and Browser Tag.

Other high-severity bugs include a heap buffer overflow in Screen Capture, an inappropriate implementation in Site Isolation, and an insufficient validation of untrusted input in V8.

Three of the medium-severity flaw patches are heap buffer overflow bugs, two are use-after-free issues, two insufficient policy enforcements, and two inappropriate implementations.


Google made no mention of any of these vulnerabilities being exploited in malicious attacks.

The latest browser version is now rolling out to Mac and Linux users as Chrome 105.0.5195.52 and to Windows users as Chrome 105.0.5195.52/53/54.
