Google Releases Chrome Version 45

Yesterday Google released Google Chrome version 45.0.2454.85 for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. This update also contains fixes for 29 security issues resolving 11 CVEs (6x High severity, 4x Medium severity, 1x Uncategorized)(CVE, defined).

Google Chrome updates automatically and will apply the update the next time Chrome is closed and then re-opened. Chrome can also be updated immediately by clicking the Options button (it looks like 3 stacked small horizontal lines) in the upper right corner of the window and choosing “About Google Chrome” from the menu. Follow the prompt to Re-launch Chrome for the update to take effect.

As always full details of the update were made available by Google in a blog post. This updated version of Chrome is no longer vulnerable to the Logjam issue since it includes this fix mentioned in my Logjam blog post.

While Google Chrome updates generally install without issues, as a routine precaution I would recommend backing up the data on any device for which you are installing updates in order to prevent data loss in the rare event that any update causes unexpected issues.

Thank you.
