It said that all Google Chrome users must update their browser on Windows PCs immediately. Why? Because they have found a number of Google Chrome bugs on the web browser.

“The Stable channel is being updated to 103.0.5060.114 (Platform version: 14816.99.0) for most ChromeOS devices and will be rolled out over the next few days. This build contains a number of bug fixes and security updates,” Google Chrome informed in the blog. However, Google did not provide any detailed information about the vulnerabilities found in the Chrome browser. But the two flaws patched by Google are also listed as high severity. Google even agreed that it is aware that an exploit for CVE-2022-2294 exists in the wild.
