A Google Chrome Zero-Day Security Flaw Is Under Active Attack, Update ASAP


There is a security update available for Google's popular Chrome browser, and you should apply it sooner than later. That is because it stomps out more than a dozen bugs, one of which Google says it is aware of being actively attacked the wild. That particular one is a zero-day exploit with a 'High' security rating, and is tracked as CVE-2021-30551.

"We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed," Google explains.

All we know about CVE-2021-30551 is that it is a "type confusion" exploit in V8, which is Google's open source JavaScript and WebAssembly engine that powers its Chrome browser. It was discovered and reported to Google by Clement Lecigne, who is part of Google's Threat Analysis Group, and Sergei Glazunov from Google's Project Zero team.
