Google Chrome Update Patches Zero-Day Actively Exploited in the Wild

Credit ID 122027716

While possible exploitation of a vulnerable Chrome installation can lead to very serious consequences from data deletion and malware infections, it's also important to understand that the attackers will only be able to run code under the context of the user browser.

Luckily, Google Chrome should be configured by default to auto-update to the latest stable release, so most users should only need to restart their web browsers to be protected.

Google's updated post revealed that the bug, CVE-2019-5786, was reported by a member of Google's Threat Analysis Group and that an exploit for it was already being used by attackers. The exact details of the zero-day vulnerability have not yet been disclosed, but it's presumably a big deal.

The Senate is expected to vote on the resolution soon - and now there appear to be enough Republicans defectors to pass it. If we take away those checks and balances, it's a risky thing", Paul suggested, according to the paper.

Google has warned owners of Windows and Mac computers have been told to urgently update their Chrome internet browser, after learning that hackers may have exploiting a mystery bug that has existed since its launch.

Google also says it is aware of the vulnerability being actively exploited in the wild.

"Despite Google's security program and despite their active collaboration with leading security researchers through generous bug bounty programs, it still suffers from memory corruption attacks related to the use of C and Cpp", Biehn explained. Google stated that the security flaw was to do with a memory management error in the browsers FileReader API which allows web apps to read files that are present on a user's computer. From there, you will be able to see your version number. It is up to users to update their browser. ZDnet reports that the hack exploited a security flaw named CVE-2019-5786, a patch to this issue was included in a version of Chrome released on March 1st; the version number was 72.0.3626.121.
