However, Google and Microsoft have classified the threat as ‘high risk’ instead.

The latest version of Google Chrome – 87.0.4280.141 – in total brings with it 16 security fixes.

Out of these 13 were identified by external researchers, with Google awarding more than $110,000 to researchers that identified the bugs.

If you want to make sure you have the latest version of Chrome installed then open your browser and lookout for the More option to the right hand side of the omnibox (aka URL bar) – which is an icon of three vertical dots.

Click on that and then choose Help and then About Chrome – you will then be able to see if your browser is up to date or not.

In other browser news, Chrome and Edge users aren’t the only ones who recently have been put on alert about security threats.
