CHROME fans have been urged to update their web browser now after a bunch of new security issues were uncovered.
Experts found seven bugs which the tech giant has rated as ‘high’ risk.
All in all, eight hidden dangers were exposed.
Google doesn’t go into too much detail about what the vulnerabilities entail.
This is to avoid providing hackers with all the clues they need to take advantage of them.
So Google only gives basic details until it’s satisfied that the majority of machines are up to date.
“Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix,” Google 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.”
What we do know is one affects passwords.
Most users have Chrome set to download and install updates automatically.
But if you’re not sure, it’s best to check so you stay safe.
