Google Chrome has a nasty bug, and you should update right now

If you are a Chrome browser user, be that in Windows, Mac, or Linux flavor, Google has some bad news for you. Attackers are already exploiting a high-impact security vulnerability that could lead to them gaining control of a system resource or to arbitrary code execution. This is the fifth zero-day Google has had to deal with in 2022 so far.

That high-severity vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2022-2856, is an improper input validation bug, and as per usual, Google doesn't release many details about it until the bulk of Chrome users are updated and the code is fixed.

In an advisory, the internet giant described the flaw as "insufficient validation of untrusted input in Intents," and noted that it "is aware that an exploit for CVE-2022-2856 exists in the wild."

Google released a fix earlier this week, meaning an update is available, which will bring your Chrome to version 104.0.5112.101 on Mac and Linux and version 104.0.5112.102/101 on Windows. It should be automatically installed on your Chrome, but if it hasn't, you can (and should) initiate the update now, by going to Chrome's "About" menu.
