  • New security patch for Chredge

    Yesterday, Microsoft updated its ongoing Security Advisory for the Chromium based version of Edge, Security Advisory ADV2000002.

    That’s Microsoft’s new way of telling you that it issued a security patch for Chredge that incorporates security patches contributed to the open source Chromium project. Since Chredge is based on Chromium, security patches to Chromium need to be rolled into Chredge.

    No, it isn’t Patch Tuesday or Patch Tuesday related. It’s just kind of random at this point. Yes, that means we have another security cycle to worry about.

    Chredge version 80.0.361.48 contains dozens of security patches. Günter Born has details.
