Chrome Users Might be Under Attack - Warns Google

The giant search engine has issued a warning for its Google Chrome users. The company has released a Chrome website browser update, which includes a cyber fix for its users. The new update of the browser - version 81.0.4044.113 has been released for Window, Mac and Lynx.

Chrome Users Kept In Oblivion

Google is also determined to maintain constraints if the bug lives in a third library upon which similar other projects depend but have not been fixed yet.

Chrome 81 Tab Groups

Google released Chrome 81 version earlier this month and also offered a new feature "Tab Groups". As the name shows, this helps the users to club relevant tabs in multiple groups for easier navigation and access.

To use this feature, the user can double click or right-click on any tab and select "Add to a New Group." Finally, users can drag as many tabs as they want into the group.

This feature also enables the user to customize the Tab Groups. Users can customize the header, group name and merge two Tab groups. Users can also ungroup tabs upon their will.

Same Site Cookie Labelling is taken back

Google rolled back its Same Site Cookie Labelling Changes in Chrome due to the Coronavirus disease outbreak. Chrome has also increased security by enforcing "secure by default" handling of third-party cookies. The gradual release of new updates is being monitored closely, and the controllers are reaching out to every website and service providers to ensure that their cookies are labelled correctly.

In Short

Chrome users might be under serious threat simply because Google has refused to disseminate the details about the vulnerabilities in new updates. As a Chrome user, you shall wait for the correct version of updates to install in your browser to avoid any vulnerability.
