The brand-new vulnerability, classified as CVE-2022-4135 is a stack buffer overflow problem in the GPU that can lead to destructive stars acquiring unapproved access to info, cause application instability, or possibly supply authorization to carry out approximate code on the target maker.
Google’s TAG acknowledged the vulnerability in a current steady channel upgrade that was released to avoid additional exploitation. Google engineers upgraded steady channel 107.0.5304.121 for Mac and Linux systems along with channel 107.0.5304.121/.122 for Windows-based systems. A list of all associated updates and release notes can be discovered in Chromium’s release logs
The finding marks the software application giant’s 8th zero-day vulnerability of 2022. Formerly covered vulnerabilities consisted of:
