Google Releases Security Update for Chrome (May / June 2016)

Late last week Google released an update for Google Chrome bringing it to version 51.0.2704.103. This updated version resolves 3 security issues assigned to 1x CVE number (defined). No severity level was provided for this CVE.

Since my previous post concerning Google Chrome updates, there have been 2 other updates:

=======================
Google Chrome 51.0.2704.63 addressing 42 security issues assigned to 24 CVEs:
The severity levels of these issues are detailed below:
• 9x high severity
• 10x medium severity
• 4x low severity
• 1x uncategorized severity
=======================

=======================
Google Chrome 51.0.2704.79 addressing 15 security issues assigned to 8 CVEs:
The severity levels of these issues are detailed below:
• 2x high severity
• 5x medium severity
• 1x uncategorized 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 blog posts linked to above. If you use Google Chrome as your web browser, please consider updating it as soon as possible.

Thank you.
