        Google released a security update for the company’s Google Chrome web browser on September 13, 2021. The update is already available and most Chrome installations should receive it automatically thanks to the integrated updating functionality….The latest version at the time of writing is Chrome 93.0.4577.82 Stable.

        Google’s official post on the Chrome Release blog reveals that 11 security issues are fixed by the update. 9 of the 11 issues are listed on the page, and they all received the severity rating of high, the second highest after critical.

        The two vulnerabilities CVE-2021-30632 and CVE-2021-30633 are mentioned specifically by Google, as they are exploited in the wild.

        Thanks, Alex, I just had those patches installed by launching Chrome, that is set to automatically update (when I have it running, that is not that often).

        Oscar, you’re my hero 😉 and I aspire to eventually come to the dark side (Apple) for my own machines. I now support one desktop on Yosemite, and two PCs on Windows 10 (one’s a touchscreen convertible laptop), three phones running iOS 14.x, and an antediluvian iPad 2 which I’d bought new but never use any more.

          SoulRider: Aw, shucks!

          The dark side is always open to you!

        We have been getting reports from some of our users that the new Chome update is causing the browser to be slow to responda and jittery.  The user PCs have no issues local apps run fine and apps that use the internet behind the scene all work with no issue.  Only when using the browser.  Anyone else hearing of this?
