The UAE has issued a warning to users of Google Chrome to update the browser to avoid security breaches

The UAE Cyber Security Council has issued a high-risk alert for those using the desktop version of Google Chrome browser.

Google released Google Chrome security updates last week to patch several high-risk vulnerabilities that could allow attackers to remotely execute code on affected systems or compromise sensitive data.

The UAE’s council recommended updating to the latest version of Google Chrome to avoid any breaches or leaks of information and personal data.

The affected versions span across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms, with Google Chrome versions prior to v122.0.6261.57 being susceptible.

Google’s new update released on February 20 addresses 12 security issues, including two classified as high severity, five as medium severity and one as low severity.
