Google fixed two vulnerabilities in its Chrome web browser as part of an emergency update this week, including a type confusion vulnerability that is already being exploited in the wild.
"Google is aware that an exploit for CVE-2022-1364 exists in the wild," the company wrote in the alert. Details will be restricted until a majority of users have updated to Chrome version 100.0.4896.127 across the Windows, Linux, and Mac platforms.
The issues also affect other Chromium-based browsers, such as Microsoft Edge, Brave, and Vivaldi.
The second issue that was fixed appears to be related to issues that were uncovered internally. The alert calls it "various fixes from internal audits, fuzzing, and other initiatives."
