Google wants you to update your Chrome browser to provide a new wave of software fixes to address some security vulnerabilities.
A software update for Chrome on PCs, Macs, and Linux, as well as other browsers that use Google code, like Microsoft Edge, will roll out in the coming days and weeks, Google said in an April 26 blog post.
Of the 30 security fixes, seven are high-level threats. Google doesn’t release details about the software bugs it covers — or potential hackers using them — until most users update the fixes.
Such software updates happen regularly, but this is alarming enough to warrant users’ immediate attention, says Lotem Finkelstein, director of cyber intelligence and research at Check Point Software Technologies, which is headquartered in San Carlos, California, and Tel Aviv , Israel.
