Serious Security Flaw

Security Flaw Google

Check the version of Chrome Browser you may be using and if the version you are using is NOT 72.0.3626.121 please update your browser straight away.

Google found a serious flaw and indicates that Chrome users should update their browser as soon as possible. At the same time they are not saying what exactly the security patch is fixing but may do so later when most users have updated.


Both  the version for Windows and for Mac is affected but not for the IOS and Android versions.

To manually check for an available update for the Mac and Windows versions, click the three-dot menu in the upper right, then Help (near the bottom of the menu that pops up), then About Google Chrome. This will open a new window where the browser will automatically begin an update check, which should only take a few seconds.

If you receive a Chrome update, you’ll need to close all of the app’s windows and re-open them for the change to take effect. After updating, the About Google Chrome page will display a button that you can click on to make the browser update automatically.

If you have set your browser to update automatically you may already have received the fix and the number above will show as your current version.

If you are unsure how to do any of this then Kapiti SeniorNet is where you seek help and as an alternative in the meantime you can use a different browser such as Firefox, Opera or Safari.

Keep on computing.
