Google has added that it will refrain from releasing bug information and related links until most users have received the new update to fix the problem. Doing so will prevent further exploitation of the mentioned vulnerability in the Chrome browser.

The new update comes just days after Chrome’s latest version 105 was released on August 30, which was still vulnerable despite fixing 24 security issues. It should be noted that this is the sixth “Zero-Day” vulnerability discovered by Chrome this year. The previous vulnerability was discovered in mid-August.
