Chrome’s Stable and Extended stable channels have been upgraded to 116.0.5845.187 for Mac and Linux and 116.0.5845.187/.188 for Windows as part of a security update.

One “Critical” security upgrade is included in this release. In the coming days and weeks, the upgrade will be implemented.

Critical Vulnerability Addressed

WebP has a serious flaw called (CVE-2023-4863), which is a heap buffer overflow.

In its security warning, Google said, “Google is aware that an exploit for CVE-2023-4863 is out there in the wild.”

On September 6, this was reported by the Citizen Lab at the Munk School at the University of Toronto and Apple Security Engineering and Architecture (SEAR).

The company is still not giving out more details about the hacks.

Google says, “Access to bug details and links may be limited until most users have been told about a fix.”

If a bug is found in a third-party code that is also used by other projects, we may need to keep some restrictions in place to keep our projects safe and secure.

Google said that if this problem hasn’t been fixed yet, it is very important that we keep putting limits in place to stop any harm or damage that could come from exploiting the vulnerability.
