Billions of Chrome users warned to update AGAIN after four more 'high' risk bugs are found | The Sun

GOOGLE has urged Chrome users to look out for yet another important just days after putting out an emergency alert.

This time around four of them have been given a "high" severity rating.

And at least one is known to exist "in the wild", making it the second so-called "zero day" vulnerability unearthed this year so far.

In total, eight bugs were found in Chrome, the world's most popular web browser.

Google doesn't go into too much detail about what the issues are.

This is to give people enough time to update their software – and not give hackers crucial information to make use of the bugs before they're patched.

Just last week the tech giant issued its first emergency update of the year to fix an apparent "hijacking" hack.

"Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix," the firm said.

"We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed."

Google said an update will be made available "over the coming days/weeks".
