The bug itself is a confusion weakness in the Chrome V8 JavaScript engine and while these types of vulnerabilities usually lead to browser crashes after reading or writing memory out of buffer bounds, cybercriminals can also exploit them to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable systems.

The vulnerability was discovered by ClĂ©ment Lecigne from Google’s Threat Analysis Group who immediately reported it to the Google Chrome team. Although Google has observed this zero-day actively being exploited in the wild, the company has been tight lipped regarding any attacks. In its security advisory, it said that details about the bug and links will be “kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix”.

Manually updating Chrome is your bet bet

Google Chrome 100.0.4896.127 for Windows, Mac and Linux will roll out in the next few weeks as an update.

However, due to the high-severity of this vulnerability, security-conscious users can update Chrome immediately by going into the Chrome menu, heading to Help and clicking on About Google Chrome. Here, they’ll be able to manually install the update themselves as opposed to waiting for Google to roll it out.

For those that would rather wait though, Chrome will automatically check for new updates and install them the next time you close and relaunch the browser.

This is the third zero-day vulnerability that has been discovered and patched in Chrome this year.
