The third vulnerability that the updated Chrome browser brings is defined as CVE-2021-21224, and it’s a type confusion in the V8 engine. There are also the CVE-2021-21225 out-of-bounds memory access flaw in the V8 engine and the CVE-2021-21226 use-after-free in navigation.
Among the flaws that Google has fixed and detailed through its advisory, the CVE-2021-21224 was exploited in the wild. However, there aren’t any details whether the issue has affected any regular Chrome users. Information about the remaining security fixes was also not provided.
“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,” the company said.
Users can manually look for the latest update on their Chrome by going to the About Chrome settings on their devices. The browser, however, gets updated automatically soon after its latest version is rolled out from the company side.
