Google urges all Chrome users to check if they have the latest of the browser.

Το Chrome είναι ένα από τα κορυφαία διαθέσιμα περιήγησης. Ωστόσο, δεν μπορούμε να αγνοήσουμε ότι αυτή είναι η τέταρτη φορά που αναφέρει ευπάθειες  μέσα σε δύο μήνες και το όγδοο 0day για φέτος. Ο αριθμός των επιθέσεων αυξάνεται σταθερά και μάλλον θα πρέπει να σκεφτείτε το ενδεχόμενο  να αλλάξετε πρόγραμμα περιήγησης.

Bonus Tip: Since Edge, Vivaldi, Opera etc are based on Chromium, which Chrome also uses, give Firefox a try. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
