News Tech: According to a recent ‘High Risk’ threat alert from the nation’s cyber agency Indian Computer Emergency Response Team, users of Google Chrome for desktop have been cautioned about a number of vulnerabilities that might allow hackers to take control of their machines (CERT-In).
“These vulnerabilities exist in Google Chrome due to use after free in FedCM, SwiftShader, ANGLE, Blink, Sign-In Flow, Chrome OS Shell; Heap buffer overflow in Downloads, Insufficient validation of untrusted input in Intents, Insufficient policy enforcement in Cookies and Inappropriate implementation in Extensions API,” it said.
The CERT-In advisory warned that these weak spots might allow an attacker to remotely execute arbitrary code and circumvent the target system’s security. Versions of Google Chrome before 104.0.5112.101 are impacted.
A individual who specialises in exploiting these security holes could receive requests from hackers. The answer was also offered by CERT-In for those who were in danger.
