Google Chrome 95 – Critical security issues fixed

If you surf the Internet with Chrome, you should update your browser due to attacks that are currently taking place. The edition 95.0.4638.69 for Linux, macOS and Windows is secured against it. As a warning message shows, the developers have closed a total of eight security holes. The majority of the holes have a “high” threat level. This is also the case with the two currently exploited vulnerabilities (CVE-2021-38000, CVE-2021-38003). It is currently not known to what extent the attacks are occurring and against whom they are specifically aimed.

The brief descriptions of the gaps read like this, in some cases entries are not adequately checked. It is currently not known what an attacker could do as a result. The successful exploitation of other holes can lead to memory errors, which in turn is often a loophole for malicious code.
