Google Releases Security Update for Chrome (May 2016)

Today Google released an update for Google Chrome bringing it to version 50.0.2661.102. This updated version resolves 5 security issues assigned to 5x CVE numbers (defined). The severity levels of these issues are detailed below:

  • 3x high severity
  • 2x medium severity

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, sometimes called a “hamburger” button) 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.
