Google is warning Chrome users that the browser has been successfully targeted with a massive hack. For now they are being tight-lipped about who initiated the hack and exactly what information was most at risk. Chrome users will be seeing a huge update in the coming days as the tech company scrambles to repair bugs and fix vulnerabilities.
Google said further hack details are currently being restricted by the company “until a majority of users are updated with a fix.”
Chrome users can manually update their browsers through the settings features, but the browsers will automatically update within a few days.
In a day and age when the “disinformation” police are hell-bent on limiting the free expression of Americans by labeling mere opinion a threat to democracy, it is more important than ever that internet users have every available tool in their reach to keep their information out of the hands of bad government actors, as well as petty criminals.
If you are a Chrome user, check on any stored passwords. The browser has a function that will allow you to see if any passwords have been compromised.
