Google has released yet another security update for the Chrome browser, which affects users of Windows, Mac, and Linux, as well as Android and iOS. The update addresses 11 security flaws, eight of which are rated as critical. As is customary, Google is delaying details about the bugs until the patch is applied by more users. This is the third security update for Chrome-powered browsers in the last month, with Google recognising internal and external researchers for their efforts in identifying the flaws.

Affected Platforms

Chrome users on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android can expect an update to version 100.0.4896.88 in the coming days, while iOS users will get version 100.0.4896.85.

Manufacturers of other Chrome-powered browsers, such as Microsoft Edge, Opera, and Brave, will also release patches.

Microsoft Edge recently released version 100.0.1185.36, which addressed the previous round of Chrome vulnerabilities, and they are currently working on a patch that addresses the current issues.

Brave released a fix that corresponds to Chrome's patched version 100.0.4896.88, whereas Opera is behind schedule with version 99.0.4844.84 of Chrome.
