Google has just urgently deployed a patch for Google Chrome. Computer security researchers have identified four critical security vulnerabilities. Problem, one of them is currently being exploited by hackers for malicious purposes.
While a study recently proved that millions of extensions play with the safety of Google Chrome users , the popular browser is still the victim of several security holes. Indeed, computer security researchers have identified four critical vulnerabilities on Google Chrome.
Problem, one of them is currently being exploited by hackers. According to Google, this flaw concerns the WebGL library , which is used in particular to display 2D and 3D models on your various web pages without having to download add-ons. This programming interface specification is used by the vast majority of current browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, or even Safari and Opera. WebGL is also establishing itself as the main replacement for Flash Player , which has disappeared since June 9 from the most recent Windows 10 versions .
As Google points out, these four flaws come from incorrect management of browser memory. And for now, it is impossible to know how this famous flaw was exploited by hackers or to know the possible dangers for users. Google has not yet given details on this.
