As of February 2024, Google Chrome holds a dominant 65% share of the global desktop browser market, making this security alert particularly concerning. CERT-IN has identified several vulnerabilities in Chrome versions prior to 125.0.6422.141/.142 for Windows and Mac, and version 125.0.6422.141 for Linux. These vulnerabilities could allow hackers to gain remote access to users’ computers and execute arbitrary code, potentially compromising any data on the device.

CERT-IN explains that these vulnerabilities are due to issues in various components of Chrome, including Media Session, Dawn, Presentation API, Keyboard, Streams API, and WebRTC. Hackers could exploit these weaknesses by luring users to visit specially crafted webpages. This means that Chrome users should be cautious about clicking on unfamiliar links or prompts, whether received via email, SMS, or seen on the browser.

To protect yourself, update your Chrome browser immediately. Here’s how: Open Chrome, click on the three-dot menu at the top right, go to Help, then select About Google Chrome. If an update is available, click Update Google Chrome. If you don’t see an update option, your browser is already up to date.

Stay safe online by ensuring your browser is always updated to the latest version.
