Google Chrome will be in trouble! The Government of India warned; Do it immediately
If you also use Google Chrome for browsing, then be careful. We are saying this because the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) under the Ministry of IT has warned users about some vulnerabilities in Google Chrome for Desktop.
CERT-In reported that exploiting these vulnerabilities could allow hackers to gain access to their computers. According to an advisory from CERT-In, several vulnerabilities could allow hackers to execute arbitrary code by bypassing security restrictions on the target system.
The cyber agency said, “FedCM, SwiftShader, Angle, Blink, sign-in flow, Chrome OS shell, free use of heap buffer overflows in downloads, insufficient validation of untrusted inputs, insufficient policy enforcement in cookies and improper implementation of extension APIs.” Because these vulnerabilities are present in Google Chrome.
This is how you can benefit, do this work immediately
A hacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by sending specially crafted requests to the target system. By taking advantage of these vulnerabilities, a hacker can remotely circumvent security restrictions and allow arbitrary code to be executed on the target system, CERT-In said. “Users are advised to apply the patch immediately”, the agency said.
Apple users were also alerted
CERT-in warned about the bug in Apple iOS, iPadOS and macOS, saying “a remote attacker could exploit this flaw by luring the victim to open a specially crafted file”. Additionally, they again found several vulnerabilities in Cisco products that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code, information disclosure and cross-site scripting attacks on an affected system.
The country’s leading cyber agency has also warned of bugs in Cisco products in recent days.
