The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has warned Google Chrome users about a security breach.
Chrome users should update their browser due to security issues
Users using a browser version prior to 97.0.4692.71 are advised to update their software as soon as possible due to this security issue. The advisory says that Google Chrome has numerous vulnerabilities that might be leveraged by an attacker to execute arbitrary code on a targeted system.
According to The Times of India’s report:
“These vulnerabilities exists in Google Chrome due to Use after free in Storage, Screen Capture, Sign-in, SwiftShader, PDF, Autofill and File Manager API; Inappropriate implementation in DevTools, Navigation, Autofill, Blink, WebShare, Passwords and Compositing; Heap buffer overflow in Media streams API, Bookmarks and ANGLE; Type Confusion in V8; Incorrect security UI in Autofill, Browser UI; Out of bounds memory access in Web Serial; Uninitialized Use in File API and Policy bypass in Service Workers.”
A remote attacker may use these flaws to execute arbitrary code and obtain full access to a user’s system. This can be accomplished by enticement to visit a website. The exploitation of these flaws may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the victim’s system. The CERT-In advises Chrome users to update their systems to version 97.0.4692.71 as soon as possible.
