Researcher Clement Lecigne of Google’s Threat Analysis Team found a zero-day bug in the Chrome browser under active exploit. The vulnerability, CVE-2020-6418, was a confusing in V8 – a Chrome component that uses JavaScript code. Google called it a critical level severity in their advice. However, Google did not share details on how the attackers exploited the bug. They confirm that the zero day is under attack.

Google also disclosed two other bugs in the Chrome browser. This includes serious bugs though Google has not disclosed any news. One of these attracted Sergei Glazunov of the Google Project. Google has defined it as out of limit memory access (CVE-2020-6407). Another vulnerability has caught the attention of Google after researcher André Bargull reported it.

Google releases patches

Recently, Google has traced all three errors and released the fix with the latest version of Chrome 80.0.3987.122. As tech giants release updates, users should make sure their devices are updated to prevent future issues. This is especially important considering the effective zero day exploitation.
