Google fixes 37 security bugs in first New Year’s Chrome update


New Delhi: In its first big New Years security update, Google rolled out 37 fixes for Windows, Mac, and Linux and one of them was rated critical.

Chrome 97.0.4692.71 contains a number of fixes and improvements.

“We would like to thank all of the security researchers who worked with us during the development cycle to prevent security bugs from reaching the stable channel,” said Prudhvikumar Bommana of Google Chrome.

Updates will be rolled out over the next few days / weeks.

“Access to bug details and links may be restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We will also keep restrictions if the bug exists in a third-party library that other projects depend on in the same way, but has not yet been fixed, ”Bommana said.

The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) issued a “high severity” warning to users of the Google Chrome web browser last month.

As per the advisory, several vulnerabilities were found in the Google Chrome browser which could be exploited by a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the targeted system.
