Read more about the CVE detail here: CVE-2022-0609 

Tracked as CVE-2022-0609, and assigned a high severity, the vulnerability is a Use-After-Free flaw found in the animation component of Google Chrome.  

If successfully exploited, it could lead to corruption of valid data, or execution of arbitrary code on the affected system. Few details are known about the issue at this time as full details will not be released by Google until the majority of users have updated. 

Seven other flaws have also been addressed by Google in its latest update, all but one of these has been classified as ‘high’ in severity. 

Remediation of Vulnerabilities: 

Google Chrome users are advised to update to the latest version of Chrome 98.0.4758.102 for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Android devices have been updated to 98.0.4758.101. 

Chrome will automatically update on its own over time; however, action can be taken now by going to ‘Menu -> Help -> About Google Chrome’. This webpage will display the current version of Chrome, and automatically checks for new update. Any update found is installed the next time Chrome is closed and relaunched.
