Chrome 103 update fixes 0-Day security issue that is exploited in the wild

Google published a new security update for the stable channel of the company's Chrome web browser that addresses several security issues. One of the security issues is exploited in the wild, according to Google.

Windows users of Chrome will receive the update to Chrome 103.0.5060.114 in the coming days and weeks. Since one of the issues is exploited in the wild, it is recommended to force Chrome to update to protect the device and its data from attacks.

The three listed security vulnerabilities are:

— High CVE-2022-2294: Heap buffer overflow in WebRTC. Reported by Jan Vojtesek from the Avast Threat Intelligence team on 2022-07-01

— High CVE-2022-2295: Type Confusion in V8. Reported by avaue and Buff3tts at S.S.L. on 2022-06-16

— High CVE-2022-2296: Use after free in Chrome OS Shell. Reported by Khalil Zhani on 2022-05-19

All three issues are rated with a severity of high, which is the second highest after critical. Google notes that exploits for CVE-2022-2294 exist in the wild. The description reveals that the attack targets a security issue in WebRTC, which stands for Web Real-Time Communications. It is a component in modern web browsers that is used for various communication tasks and services.

Chrome users should install the update as soon as possible to protect the device against the exploit. It is the fourth 0-day vulnerability that has been patched by Google in the browser in 2022.

Interesting and useful considerations. How long will it take to export them to the new updated slimjet 103 version?
