An emergency Google Chrome security update has been recently issued after some vulnerabilities have been found. This update lists four main vulnerabilities and one is for a critical issue in the browser’s ‘autofill payments’ function which automatically enters your payment details in online forms for you.
At the moment we don’t know the exact details of these vulnerabilities, this information isn’t usually made public until we’ve all had time to implement the updates.
What you should do about it:
- Force your Google Chrome browser to update (Chrome > More > Help > About Google Chrome).
- If you can’t find the ‘update’ button then you are on the latest version.
- Once complete click ‘relaunch’ or close the browser window and reopen it in order for the update to take effect.
