GOOGLE has released an update for Chrome to address some high-risk security threats.
This time, the tech giant sorted 27 security flaws.
Many were detected by outside professionals, of which eight were considered high in severity.
There was only one other review that was more serious – important – but not any as bad.
Of those reported to Google, 10 were considered moderate threats, while one was rated low.
Google relies on experts from outside the company to find security holes.
It will then pay them a bug bounty for their efforts once an issue is confirmed.
Chrome 98, known as the latest version, is part of a periodic update cycle that is typically rolled out every four weeks or so.
This latest release mainly focuses on issues under the bonnet of Chrome.
So you shouldn’t expect any major visual changes nor any new features.
The update should install automatically, but you can force it if it doesn’t.
This can be done by opening Setting and mining About Chrome from the side menu.
