Google Chrome: The entire data of the phone should not be stolen, the data of crores of users is in danger, stay safe like this


Google Chrome, used by millions of users, is posing a big threat. The Government of India has issued a warning regarding this. The Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-in) has issued a warning regarding security vulnerabilities found in the Google Chrome web browser on some devices. According to reports, these vulnerabilities can potentially be exploited by hackers to execute arbitrary code, trigger a denial of service (DOS) condition, obtain sensitive information, and bypass restrictions on the target system.

Hackers can exploit these vulnerabilities to extract data from your system, including login credentials and financial details. Versions of Google Chrome before 124.0.6357.78/.79 for Windows and Mac and before 124.0.6367.78 for Linux are affected. Hackers can take advantage of these vulnerabilities from anywhere, so it is important to be alert.
