Google Releases Emergency Update to its Chrome Browser to Fix Vulnerability

by | Sep 3, 2022 | News & Updates

Google released update 105.0.5195.102 to its Chrome Browser to address a zero-day vulnerability that was alleged being exploited by cybercriminals.

In a security advisory published on Friday, the company said, ‘Google is aware of reports that an exploit for CVE-2022-3075 exists in the wild’.

According to a report by Bleeping Computer, this updated is aimed solely at addressing a vulnerability known as CVE-2022-3075. CVE-2022-3075 is a high severity vulnerability caused by a case of insufficient data validation in Mojo, which is “a collection of runtime libraries providing a platform-agnostic abstraction of common IPC primitives, a message IDL format, and a bindings library with code generation for multiple target languages to facilitate convenient message passing across arbitrary inter- and intra-process boundaries”.

Google did not, however, disclose any details about the exploitation although the company does know about the vulnerability being exploited in the ‘wild’.

The reason that the company did not provide any details about the exploitation may be that it wants to allow its users enough time to apply the patch to prevent potential exploitation attempts.
