Details are few, but it sounds like one bad bug
Earlier this month, we learned about the zero-day Chrome exploit that state-sponsored hackers based in North Korea were able to access for just over a month before a patch was issued in mid-February. In that case, the hackers were able to fool the unwary with compromised real websites and sites they’d spoofed by securing similar domain names. Now, for the second time that we know of in 2022, there’s another Chrome zero-day and Google is rolling out yet another fix.
The company explained keeping some information away from the public as a safety measure, stating that full details on how the exploit worked won’t be made public until most users have the fix. Fortunately, this time Google was apparently able to issue a patch before the exploit became widely known. Users should update to Chrome version 99.0.4844.84 as soon as possible.
