Google has issued a critical warning you need to know about.
According to Forbes, security specialist Sophos picked up an exploit that could allow an attack of untrusted code. Without going into the details of it, you need to make sure you have the latest version of Google Chrome running on all your devices.
I personally received a notification and updated my Google Chrome browser just a few days go, so I felt pretty confident that I was running the latest version … wrong!
How to check your version of Chrome
To check if you have the lastest version of Google Chrome simply …
Click the three vertical dots in the top right corner of the browser
Then navigate to Help / About.
When I did this, to my surprise there was another new update I was not aware of and I had the message ‘Nearly up to date’.
So … I relaunched to update Chrome.
And now I have the latest version.
When you update to the latest version you too will have closed the door on the possibility of a security breach through your Google Chrome browser.
Remember … App and Program updates are often to patch security vulnerabilities not just to add new features.
As this example shows it’s not always easy but try to make sure all the programs, Apps and browsers that you use are always updated.
