Google issues latest fixes for Chrome desktop version

November 11, 2016

Google on Wednesday has updated its Chrome browser desktop version to fix three vulnerabilities discovered by external researchers, including two high-severity flaws.

The most severe problems were a heap corruption in the FFmpeg video and audio converter tool (CVE-2016-5199) and an out-of-bounds memory access in the V8 open-source JavaScript Engine (CVE-2016-5200). Google also corrected an info leak in Chrome extensions (CVE-2016-5201), and made a series additional tweaks to its browser based on internal audits and fuzzing (a fourth fix, collectively designated as CVE-2016-5202).

This newest stable-channel release – version 54.0.2840.99 for Windows, 54.0.2840.98 for Mac and 54.0.2840.100 for Linux – will roll out over the coming days and weeks, the company announced on its Chrome Releases blog.
