Chrome - update now

Critical bug in Google Chrome – get your update now

Google just issued a Chrome update with a note that says, “This update includes 1 [critical] security fix.”

Curiously, despite a bug that’s critical enough to imply that it is exploitable and that exploiting it could let a crook implant malware on your computer, Google advises that the new version “will roll out over the coming days/weeks.”

Days might be OK, but weeks sounds too long to us, so we recommend going through the update process as as soon as you can.

Go to the About Chrome menu option (or About Chromium if you use the non-proprietary flavour of the browser) and check that you have 81.0.4044.113 or later.

If you aren’t yet patched, checking the version should automatically trigger an update.
