As one of the most widely used web browsers in the world, Google Chrome has issued a high-severity warning for users about a bug that can potentially harm a user’s device.

According to a blog post from Google, an exploit for CVE-2022-3723 exists in the wild, and can be potentially threatening to users. CVE-2022-3723 is a ‘type confusion’ issue with Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine. Threat Actors may exploit this type confusion error on the victim’s device to execute arbitrary code that gives them access to the user’s system.

The company has now released a fix for it, and you need to update your browser immediately. The company has updated the Stable channel for Google Chrome to 107.0.5304.87 for Mac and Linux and 107.0.5304.87/.88 for Windows. 

Users are advised to update to the latest version as soon as it is released to secure their laptops from the harmful bug. Google says it will roll out the update over the coming weeks/days. “We would also like to thank all security researchers that worked with us during the development cycle to prevent security bugs from ever reaching the stable channel”, Google says in the blog.

To update your browser, open Google Chrome on your computer, and click on the three dots placed at the top-right corner of your screen. Next, click on the ‘About Google Chrome’ option, in which if the Google chrome version is not up to date, you will see an ‘Update Google Chrome’ option.
