Google on March seven two thousand eighteen, officially released Chrome web browser version 65.0.3325.146. This latest version of google chrome includes forty five security fixes. This latest version of Google Chrome affects Google Chrome web browser on Linux, MAC, and Microsoft Windows platforms.
Nine were categorized High, fifteen categorized Medium, and just three categorized low. There were quite a few buffer over flow situations fixed. There was even a uniform resource locator spoof fixed.
The Google Chrome support team claim that they will keep information restricted pertaining to bug fixes until enough of their users have been updated. Also, they claim they reserve the right to keep bug(s) information restricted if that bug(s) has not been fixed yet. In a response to a comment on this blog post, I found out that Google Chrome support team keeps information about bugs a secret for fourteen weeks after a bug is marked “fixed”.
“Hi David, that just means all the bugs are currently restricted. By default they are opened up 14 weeks after the bug has been marked as fixed.”
Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. 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.
This information is new to me. Perhaps they released this statement after they did NOT release any information about a more recent Google Chrome update? Who kows, I do NOT know.
By default Chrome is supposed to automatically update. You can install Google Chrome version 65.0.3325.146 manually by selecting “Help” then select “About Google Chrome”. In about Google Chrome, if an update is available, that update will begin downloading.
