Double zero-day in Chrome and Edge – check your versions now!


If you’re a Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser fan, you’re probably getting updates automatically and you’re probably up to date already.


…just in case you’ve missed any updates recently, we suggest you go and check right now, because the Chromium browser core, on which both Edge and Chrome are based, has patched not one but two zero-day remote code execution (RCE) bugs recently.

Google is keeping the details of these bugs quiet for the time being, presumably because they’re easy to exploit if you know exactly where to look.

After all, a needle is easy to find even in a giant haystack if someone tells you which bale it’s in before you start.
