I'm still seeing the word Update and occasionally the word Error in some Google Chrome browser programs. If you look in the upper right-hand part of your screen when you're in Google Chrome and see "Update" or "Error" you MUST update or reinstall Google Chrome.

Make sure you update Google Chrome on your cell phones as well. I'm available to help you do this as a house call here in Honolulu Hawaii covering all of Oahu or remotely for the English speaking U.S.A.. Mainland U.S.A. text only 808.224.1870 due to time differences.

Google Chrome Emergency Updates

As the world’s biggest browser with over 3 billion users, it’s no surprise attackers are targeting Google Chrome. Browser-based attacks are particularly worrying because they can potentially be chained together with other vulnerabilities and used to take over your device.

It has been a particularly busy month for the team behind Google’s Chrome browser, which has seen several security updates within weeks of each other. The latest, pushed out in mid-April, fixes two issues including a high-severity zero-day vulnerability, CVE-2022-1364, which is already being used by attackers.

The technical details aren’t currently available, but the timing of the fix—just a day after it was reported—indicates it’s pretty serious. If you use Chrome, your browser should now be on version 100.0.4896.127 to include the fix. You’ll need to restart Chrome after the update has been installed to ensure it activates.

The Chrome issue also impacts other Chromium-based browsers, including Brave, Microsoft Edge, Opera, and Vivaldi, so if you use one of those, make sure you apply the patch.

But that’s not all. On April 27, Google announced another Chrome update, fixing 30 security vulnerabilities. None of these have been exploited yet, the company says, but seven are rated as being high risk. The update takes the browser to version 101.0.4951.41.

"There's a huge difference in knowing how to use computers and knowing how to teach and tutor while creating an efficient, effective and fun learning environment. A lot of the stress especially on senior citizens is trying not to frustrate their grandson trying to teach grandma how to use a computer or smart cell phone." Give your mom and dad the same advantage you had as you learned how to use a computer in school. Get your parents a professional educator such as myself.
