Emergency Google Chrome update fixes zero-day used in attacks

Google has released Chrome 99.0.4844.84 for Windows, Mac, and Linux users to address a high-severity zero-day bug exploited in the wild.

The 99.0.4844.84 version is already rolling out worldwide in the Stable Desktop channel, and Google says it might be a matter of weeks until it reaches the entire userbase.

This update was available immediately when BleepingComputer checked for new updates by going into Chrome menu > Help > About Google Chrome.

The web browser will also auto-check for new updates and automatically install them after the next launch.

Also affects Chromium-based browsers such as Microsoft Edge:

1.   Click on the 3 dots (...) on the very right-hand side of the window
2.   Click on Help and Feedback
3.   Click on About Microsoft Edge
4.   Check your Edge is version 99.0.1150.55
