Chrome Update - Security Patch ASAP

Hi folks - Please update chrome at the very first opportunity if you have it installed on your PC/laptop (even if you are not regularly using chrome).

An important security update patch was released by google on Friday and action is needed.

According to the second link Janet provided,
Quote:
Users of Chromium-based browsers such as Microsoft Edge, Opera, and Vivaldi are also advised to apply the fixes as and when they become available.
I use Microsoft Edge (Windows 11), and it appears to have updated just now when I checked (at Edge Settings, "About Microsoft Edge", restart Edge).

Thank you, Janet!

Windows, Mac, and Linux users to address a high-severity zero-day bug exploited in the wild.

Sounds like some type of germ warfare!

But seriously, with more & more people, becoming more & more comfortable having all of their data out there on the cloud, my gut tells me someday there's going to be a huge problem that will do an incredible amount of damage.

Hope I'm wrong
