Google has given advice to Android smartphones, which can protect against threats like hacking.

But despite this, many hackers manage to break into Chrome. To avoid this, a new update has been released by Google. Also, on behalf of Google, Android smartphone users have been advised to immediately install new updates of Google Chrome. The company claims that the new update will completely eliminate hacking on the browser.

Google identified bug

According to an online report, a bug has been identified by Google, which used to lead to incidents like hacking by dodging the Google Chrome Security sandbox on Android devices. For this, a new security update has been released by Google. This update is for users using Chrome on Android devices, which will solve the problem of zero day vulnerability. Meaning Android device can be made fullproof secure.

For the third time in the last two weeks, the problem of zero day vulnerability has been identified by Google’s Thread Analysis Group (TAG). The problem of zero day vulnerability was first identified on the desktop version of Chrome. However, now on Wednesday, a new update has been released by the company for the issue of zero day vulnerability for Google Chrome running on Android version 86.0.4240.185.

Details of the bug and its exploit are not yet revealed as the update is currently in its rollout process. However, Google said that the new version would become available for download through Google Play over the next few weeks.

Earlier this week, Google rolled out a security update for its Chrome browser on desktops that patched a zero-day vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2020-16009, that existed in JavaScript engine V8. Prior to the last update, Google patched another zero-day issue affecting its Chrome desktop version last month. That vulnerability, identified as CVE-2020-15999, impacted the FreeType font rendering library of the browser.

It is unclear whether the three zero-day bugs discovered in the last month are exploited by a single threat actor or multiple groups. Having said that, users on both Android and desktop versions of the Chrome browser are recommended to install the latest updates as soon as they are available.

Google has not confirmed whether the three zero-day vulnerabilities are different from each other and whether they have been used by the same hacking group. Last month, the problem of a zero-day vulnerability in the Microsoft Windows operating system was identified by the Google Security Team. Zero-Day Vulnerability, also known as 0-day, is a computer software vulnerability, which allows a person with knowledge of a computer to affect other software-based devices with the help of software.
