The new Chrome update includes fixes for several security issues, including a vulnerability called “type confusion”. The security vulnerability was first reported on April 13, keeping Google Chrome engineers busy ever since.
Google considers this zero-day vulnerability highly sensitive and risky, which is why you’ve had three updates in just one week, which is pretty unprecedented in most cases. The problem is large enough to crash the browser and allow attackers to access arbitrary code for their underhanded purposes.
MacOS users can manually check for the Chrome update by going to the Google Chrome app on their Mac and clicking About Google Chrome to see if the new version is available for your system. After installing the update, Chrome will ask you to relaunch the web browser for the changes to be reflected in the back-end.
