Hackers these days are becoming smarter and more prominent. Highly skilled ones can access your personal data within minutes, while others use other forms of phishing scams to obtain your information.
According to the Singapore Computer Emergency Response Team (SingCERT), the most recent kind of cyber-attacks are the ones where hackers are exploiting a certain kind of “high-severity vulnerability” flaw that Google Chrome has.
SingCERT Advise Users to Update Chrome Immediately
Although it is not mentioned how severe this situation is, SingCERT has strongly advised users of Google Chrome to install the latest security updates as soon as possible.
It is stated that there have been 11 security vulnerabilities that have been discovered and that they have been fixed in the latest Google Chrome update.
One of the few vulnerabilities allows applications to be launched through web service from a web page, which is considered a high-severity issue.
Another dangerous vulnerability is called the “use-after-free” vulnerability which misdirects software so that it does not follow its usual security protocols such as blocking untrusted data from entering.
All these vulnerabilities could allow hackers to do various things such as installation of random applications on the victim’s device and view or change the victim’s personal data.
Macam like spy movie only.
