Last week Google released an update for Google Chrome bringing it to version 48.0.2564.116. This update addresses a single critical security issues (this issue has been assigned a 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. If you use Google Chrome as your web browser, please consider updating it as soon as possible. Thank you.
