Contributed by: Drex DeFord
Summary
In response to recent zero-day vulnerabilities and security threats, Google has mandated urgent updates for its Chrome browser. All users, including federal employees, are required to apply updates by June 6 to protect against critical exploits, such as memory issues and vulnerabilities in the Chromium Visuals and V8 Engine. U.S. government agencies have already updated their systems, with additional deadlines looming for other known exploits. Furthermore, users are cautioned against the potential risks of cookie theft through malicious plugins and the importance of verifying the authenticity of installed extensions. Despite concerns over ad blockers affected by the transition from Manifest V2 to V3, the security updates remain essential. If a system no longer supports Chrome updates, discontinuation of use is advised to avoid exploitation.
