Investing a little time to keep programs up to date is worth it. Most of the time, it’s just a few clicks that can save a lot of trouble. Currently, Chrome needs your attention.

Google releases a new Chrome version, which users should install as soon as possible. This is because the update fixes a Chrome security vulnerability for which software tools have already been found on the web to exploit, the company warns.

Google rates the risk of the vulnerability, which affects the browser’s Java Script program component called V8, as high. The new secure Chrome version 99.0.4844.84 for Windows, macOS is coming these days and frn coming weeks in stages.
