    Google warns Mac users to patch a high risk Chrome browser security flaw

    Google has issues an emergency security update for Chrome for Mac.

    Google warns that it is aware of reports that an exploit for the flaw, CVE-2022-3723 exists in the wild.
    CVE-2022-3723 is the seventh zero-day vulnerability patched by Google this year.

    As Bleeping Computer explains, type confusion vulnerabilities generally
    occur "when the program allocates a resource, object, or variable using a
    type and then accesses it using a different, incompatible type, resulting
    in out-of-bounds memory access." This could allow an attacker to "read sensitive information of other apps, cause crashes, or execute arbitrary
    code," none of which are good.

    The 107.0.5304.87 update can be installed by going to
    Preferences > About Chrome > Check for Update.
    Then click Relaunch to install the new version.
