Google has released an update to Chrome to address another high-risk zero-day vulnerability, the fourth this year.

Google has yet to release technical details, but in version update note that the flaw is described as a “stack buffer overflow in WebRTC. Reported by Jan Wojtesek of the Avast Threat Intelligence team on 2022-07-01″.

On July 4, Google said in a blog post: “Google is aware that an exploit for CVE-2022-2294 exists in the wild.”

It says the zero-day vulnerability has been exploited by hackers in the wild.

Chrome 103.0.5060.114 should be available to all users within weeks.

The browser constantly checks for and downloads updates as they are released. Once this new patch is installed, Chrome should be protected.

Users can manually check for an update by navigating on the Chrome home page to Help and then About. This results in an instant check that Chrome is fully up-to-date.

Google added: “Access to bug details and links may be restricted until most users are updated with a fix. We’ll also preserve restrictions if the bug exists in a third-party library that other projects similarly depend on but haven’t yet fixed.”

The upcoming version of Chrome also fixes high-severity defects with the V8 JavaScript engine and the Chrome OS shell.

Previously, three zero-day vulnerabilities were discovered by Google this year on February 14, March 25 and April 14. This first vulnerability was used by North Korean hackers as early as January 4 this year to send phishing emails.
