Google Releases Further Security Update for Chrome (March 2016)

Yesterday Google released an update for Google Chrome this time bringing it to version 49.0.2623.101. This update addresses 5 security issues (4x high severity, 1x uncategorized; all of these issues have been assigned CVEs (defined)). One of the issues addressed was disclosed at Pwn2Own 2016.

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.
