Vulnerability in Google Chrome Exposes Users to Remote Hacking Risk

Ensure your Google Chrome browser is promptly updated to mitigate potential security threats from remote hackers. Discovered by Google’s Threat Analysis Group on November 24, a critical integer overflow bug (CVE-2023-6345) in Skia, the graphics engine for Google Chrome and ChromeOS, poses a risk. This bug, as per the National Vulnerability Database, enables a remote attacker to potentially escape the sandbox through a compromised renderer process. In essence, it could empower hackers to execute a virus via Chrome or access sensitive in-browser data. Google acknowledges an existing exploit in the wild and assigns a high severity level to the Chromium security threat. While automatic updates are scheduled, users are advised to manually update their browsers promptly to the latest version.
