Chrome zero-day attack under active exploit
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.
The current zero-day marks the third major risk that has caught the attention of hackers before the fix. The first of these (CVE-2019-5786) went online in March 2019 and the second vulnerability (CVE-2019-13720) appeared online in November 2019.
