"I wonder which one will get more attention?" he said before adding the following: "Also, seriously, update your Chrome installs. like right this minute".

Most users who saw the company's release didn't think too much about a run-of-the-mill Chrome update, which Google provides on a regular basis, sometimes for the smallest of bugs. "Reported by Clement Lecigne of Google's Threat Analysis Group on 2019-02-27", the update reveals.

A zero-day is a vulnerability, usually unknown by a software vendor, that gives hackers a high level of access thanks to a critical flaw.

The Chrome team also released a statement noting that details about the bug would be "restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix".

Uber Found Not Criminally Liable In Fatal 2018 Self-Driving Car Accident
Miller wrote that, after one November 2017 incident, he felt a significant accident report was not receiving enough attention. Following the crash, authorities in Arizona suspended Uber's ability to test self-driving cars on the state's public roads.

Google's head of Chrome security has warned all Chrome users to update the browser immediately to patch to a zero day flaw that was being exploited now. Google stated that the security flaw was to do with a memory management error in the browsers FileReader API which allows web apps to read files that are present on a user's computer.

According to Googler Abdul Syed, the ads giant is "aware of reports that an exploit for CVE-2019-5786 exists in the wild", meaning criminals and other miscreants are leveraging the bug to infect victims' computers. From there you can update as necessary, or use your favorite package manager to upgrade.

"Despite Google's security program and despite their active collaboration with leading security researchers through generous bug bounty programs, it still suffers from memory corruption attacks related to the use of C and Cpp", Biehn explained. If this isn't your version, you can manually start a download. There, users can select "Check for Updates".
