Title: Update Google Chrome. Now.

Serious Chrome zero-day – Google says update “right this minute”

Chrome users, make sure you’ve got the very latest version.

Or, as Justin Schuh, one of Chrome’s well-known security researchers, put it:

    Like, seriously, update your Chrome installs… like right this minute.

We’re not big Chrome fans – we’ve always thought that Firefox is better in both form and function, to be honest – but we have Chrome installed at the moment and can tell you that the version you want is 72.0.3626.121, released at the start of March 2019.

To check that you’re up-to-date, go to the About Google Chrome… window, accessible from the address bar by typing in the special URL chrome://settings/help.

This will not only show the current version but also do an update check at the same time, just in case any recent auto-updates have failed or your computer hasn’t called home yet.
