Chrome 0 Day Halloween Exploit

For the second time this year, Google has released information urging everyone to update to the latest version of Google Chrome to combat a 0 Day vulnerability found in previous versions.

Most configurations of Chrome should be auto updating but it is suggested to push out the updated version which isĀ 78.0.3904.87

As stated in the ZDNet.com article here

Per Kaspersky, the zero-day was found being deployed on user devices via a Korean-language news portal. The Russian antivirus company said it couldn’t link the zero-day’s use to a specific hacking group, although there are some code similarities with past North Korean malware. The company is tracking the current attacks using this zero-day under a codename of “Operation WizardOpium.”

Bottom line, the odds of being affected by this are very slim but nevertheless its worth the due diligence and ensuring you are all patched up!
