Google advises users to update Chrome as soon as possible to avoid being hacked.
New Delhi: Google has advised its Chrome browser users to install a security update immediately to protect themselves from a serious bug being actively exploited by hackers.
The tech giant confirmed that an exploit for ‘CVE-2022-3075’ exists in the wild, citing the vulnerability as “Insufficient data validation in Mojo” reported by an anonymous security researcher.

The company stated that a security patch for Google Chrome users on Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems will be released in the coming days/weeks.
“Access to bug details and links may be restricted until the majority of users have received a fix,” Google stated in a security update.
“We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third-party library on which other projects rely but have not yet been fixed,” it added.
This is the sixth zero-day vulnerability that Chrome has encountered this year.
Chrome users must now relaunch their browser to activate the most recent security update.
This latest update arrives just days after Google Chrome version 105 was released on August 30.
“We would like to thank all security researchers who collaborated with us during the development cycle to ensure that security bugs never reached the stable channel,” the company said.
