Google updates Chrome to address security flaws

Google has updated Chrome to protect users from attacks that exploit security vulnerabilities in the widely used browser. Chrome version 50.0.2661.94 includes nine security fixes for vulnerabilities affecting the browser on Windows, Mac and Linux.

You are advised to review and apply the Chrome update immediately.

Attackers can potentially exploit software vulnerabilities to take control of computer systems, and gain access to sensitive personal information, including online banking details that can then be used to steal victims’ money or identities.

The IT Guru recommends that you automatically apply security updates when they become available. Automatic updates minimise the risk of you delaying or forgetting to apply an update, and restrict the ability of attackers to gain access to your computer and sensitive personal and financial data.
