News hardware Big security flaw on internet browsers: check quickly if you are concerned!
A zero-day security flaw has just been discovered in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers: it is imperative to update as soon as possible.
If you are the type who delays updating your browser, this time you should on the contrary install it as soon as possible: it is in any case the most prudent thing to do if you use a browser which works on the basis of Chromium. Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge are affected by a zero-day vulnerability that is already being exploited by hackers who don’t want to do you any good.
Updates are already available
This security flaw can potentially affect more than 3 billion people, considering the popularity of Chromium-based browsers. Google and Microsoft have already released patches that close the vulnerability in Chrome and Edge. Other browsers, such as Vivaldi and Brave, should soon follow suit.
To update Chrome, all you have to do is open the browser, go to settings and then to “Security and privacy”. Then perform a “Security Check” to make sure you have the latest version. If not, update immediately.
On the Edge side, open the browser, go to the settings and then to the “About Microsoft Edge” section to check if you have the latest version. If needed, you can manually download the update.
