Google has released an emergency security patch for its three billion+ Chrome users, revealing that attackers are already exploiting a high-severity zero-day vulnerability.

The emergency upgrade to Chrome version 99.0.4844.84 is only designed to correct one security vulnerability, so Google has established a new web page for those affected by this flaw.

Google has confirmed that it is aware of an exploit for CVE-2022-1096 and considers it "high severity" due to the threat of exploitation by attackers. Not much is known about the bug itself or how serious the harm would be if exploited, but the unusual release of this patch, which only addresses one flaw, implies that it should not be overlooked.

That's why Google urges all Chrome users to upgrade the web browser as soon as possible. According to Google, the rollout of the update will take several weeks. "Google always takes additional steps to provide further information until most users have been updated with a solution."

Fortunately, there’s an easy and more secure way to protect your browser from threats. It’s called Guardio.
