    New Chrome Zero Day Flaw

    March 16th, 2021 by

    Google Warns Mac, Windows Users of Chrome Zero-Day Flaw

    “The use-after-free vulnerability is the third Google Chrome zero-day flaw to be disclosed in three months.

    Google is hurrying out a fix for a vulnerability in its Chrome browser that’s under active attack – its third zero-day flaw so far this year. If exploited, the flaw could allow remote code-execution and denial-of-service attacks on affected systems.

    The vulnerability exists in Blink, the browser engine for Chrome developed as part of the Chromium project. Browser engines convert HTML documents and other web page resources into the visual representations viewable to end users.”
