The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), part of the Ministry of Information Technology, has issued a high severity alert on Google Chrome. CERT-In has reported a number of vulnerabilities in Chrome that could be used by cyber attackers to execute arbitrary code on users’ computers.

According to CERT-In, v8 has been found to cause vulnerabilities due to type confusion. These include V8 Web Apps, UI, Window Manager, Screen Capture, File API, Auto Fill and Developer Tools;

Invalid security UI in Autofill; Extensions include Heap Buffer Overflow, BFCache and ANGLE; Type Confusion in the Loader; Lack of adequate data verification on loader; ANGLE includes Integer Underblow and a lack of adequate verification of unreliable input on the new tape page.

This has caused much vulnerability in Google Chrome. Accordingly Google has already released the solution to these vulnerabilities in its latest update for Chrome and urges CERT-In users to update their browser as soon as possible.
