Google Releases Chrome Version 48

Yesterday Google released an update for Google Chrome bringing it to version 48.0.2564.82. This update includes fixes for 37 security issues described below:

2x high severity CVEs (defined)
6x medium severity CVEs
1x remaining CVE assigned to multiple uncategorized issues

Other security issues addressed are detailed in Google’s blog post. As detailed in a past blog post this version of Chrome no longer supports the RC4 cipher (defined). Google have now dropped support for RC4 ahead of Mozilla and Microsoft.

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.

If you use Google Chrome as your web browser, please consider updating it as soon as possible to be protected from these security vulnerabilities. Thank you.
