The company says it is â€œaware of reports that an exploit for CVE-2022-3075 exists in the wild.â€
Google is not yet providing details of the vulnerability, as it first wants to allow time for users to update, but Macworld reports that it is a fix for a heap buffer overflow. This is a flaw that allows an attacker to write arbitrary data to memory locations that should be protected.
If you have automatic updates enabled, then Chrome will at some point update itself, but this can take days to weeks, as the company gradually rolls out updates to prevent server overloads. For this reason, weâ€™d advise doing a manual update by going to Preferences > About Chrome > Check for updates. Version 107.0.5304.121 is the one youâ€™re after.
Macworld notes that this is the eighth time Google has issued emergency patches to Chrome for Mac so far this year.
