A new version of Google Chrome is rolling out to Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android over the next few weeks, the company announced this week.

Chrome version 69.0.3497.81 is being promoted to the stable channel for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The update packs 40 security fixes, including patches for vulnerabilities an attacker could abuse to assume control over a target system, according to a US-CERT advisory on the update.

In addition to Google's security team, many of the bugs were detected using AddressSanitizer, MemorySanitizer, UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer, Control Flow Integrity, libFuzzer, or AFL.

Chrome for Android 69 (69.0.3497.76) has also been released and will be available on Google Play over the next few weeks, Google reports. The 10th anniversary edition aims to improve mobile payment security with third-party payment apps, password generation on more websites, stability and performance improvements, and a cleaner modernized design.
