Updated alert. Google Chrome users are advised to update the software on their web browser as soon as possible to ensure their security. The American giant has just made available a security update to correct a computer flaw representing a high risk for Internet users.
On this kind of vulnerability, hackers can easily recover user data, take remote control of the device in use, or install viruses. According to the release notes published by Google on the blog dedicated to Chrome updates, this breach could be "actively exploited" by hackers, without giving, of course, any information on how the flaw has so far been used by hackers.

To avoid being jacker, it is therefore necessary to check absolutely that you have the latest Chrome update. These are automatically searched for and applied as soon as you close your browser but it is best to check that the latest version is installed. To redo this, go to Chrome, in the "Help" or "About Chrome" tab, depending on your device (Windows, MacOS, Linux...).
If a new update is available on Google's servers, Chrome will, without your consent, download and install it. All you have to do is press the "Relaunch" button to restart your browser and get the update.
