Google Chrome security alert — why you should update right now

It’s time to update Google Chrome and related browsers once again: Google has just released a fix for the second actively exploited Chrome zero-day security flaw in two weeks. The fix applies to Windows, macOS and Linux.

“CVE-2020-16009 is a v8 bug used for remote code execution,” wrote Google Project Zero technical lead Ben Hawkes on Twitter yesterday (Nov. 2). He was referring, respectively, to the flaw’s catalog number, the Chrome component that handles JavaScript and the fact that the flaw can be exploited over the internet.
