Government Ask Google Chrome Users Update: If you are working on an older version of Google Chrome, you need to leave all the work and update it. This has been said not by us but in a warning issued by the government. The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has found some vulnerabilities in Google Chrome. This government agency believes that cybercriminals and hackers can exploit these vulnerabilities.
By taking advantage of these shortcomings, hackers can access your system and install malware. Hardly anyone is unaware of malware now. Still, let me tell. Malware is also a type of software deliberately created by hackers to create defects in your system. With its Help, hackers are successful in stealing your personal information. To do this, hackers take control of the system, and you do not even know about it.
Google has already issued an update to overcome this shortcoming. All you need to do is update your Google Chrome. By taking advantage of this weakness of Google Chrome, hackers can do Arbitrary Code Execution in the system. The question will be in your mind: how is it possible to do this?

The computer cannot differentiate between valid inputs such as passwords and codes such as commands. That is to say, if you type numbers or letters in a sequence, the computer will accept it. By taking advantage of this, hackers can convert an entry into an attack. Now the hacker can trigger any flaw in your system. Can modify the information through the program. Can enter new codes. In a way, the whole system can be captured.
Google has said that the update has been provided to fix 22 types of security vulnerabilities. Google has also admitted that it was told about these shortcomings by an outside researcher.
