New security update for Chrome available

Developers have fixed 16 security vulnerabilites.

Google has released a security update for its Chrome browser. The Google developers have closed 16 security vulnerabilities.

In the new Chrome version 87.0.4280.141 for Windows, macOS and Linux from January 6, several vulnerabilities have been fixed. The Chrome Release Blog lists the 13 of the 16 fixed security vulnerabilities.

These include 12 vulnerabilities that Google classifies as high risk. These include eight vulnerabilities in various browser components and two buffer overflows.

Two developers of Chromium-based browsers have followed up already: Microsoft has released an update to Edge 87.0.664.75, which closes the same vulnerabilities as Chrome 87.0.4280.141. Vivaldi 3.5.2115.87 is based on Chromium 87.0.4280.142 and is therefore also secure now. Brave and Opera updates are not available yet.

Chrome for Android is also available in version 87.0.4280.141.
