I wanted to inform you that Google recently rolled out another emergency fix for a high-severity zero-day vulnerability in its Chrome web browser. This is the second time they’ve had to issue such a fix in just a few days.

I know I have said this before, but another browser may be worth considering. Chrome seems to be under attack constantly, whereas we see fewer attacks on browsers like Brave, Firefox, and Tor. Chrome is excellent when using Google Meet or other Google products, but it may not be worth the risk.

The vulnerability, CVE-2023-2136, is an integer overflow issue in Skia, an open-source 2D graphics library. It was discovered and reported by Clément Lecigne of Google’s Threat Analysis Group on April 12, 2023.

If you stick with Chrome, update your browser to version 112.0.5615.137 on Windows, macOS, or Linux to mitigate potential threats.

Contact the Privacy Care Team or me for assistance if you have any concerns or questions. We can help you resolve issues and provide tips to enhance online privacy and security.

All the best,
Max 🙂
