Major security holes found in Chrome OS

The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) issued a high-severity warning on February 8th, urging all Google Chrome OS users to update their systems immediately. Multiple critical vulnerabilities have been identified in older versions of the operating system, posing a significant risk to user security and privacy.

These vulnerabilities, categorized under the identifier CIVN-2024-0031, could allow attackers to remotely execute malicious code, gain unauthorized access, or even disable affected devices. They stem from issues in the Side Panel Search feature and inadequate data validation in extensions.

What You Need to Do:

  1. Update Immediately: The most crucial step is to update your Chrome OS to version 114.0.5735.350 or later. This update contains essential patches that address the identified vulnerabilities.
  2. Browse Cautiously: Be wary of visiting unfamiliar or suspicious websites, as attackers might use them to exploit these vulnerabilities.
  3. Beware of Phishing: Avoid clicking on links or opening attachments from untrusted sources, including emails and messages.
  4. Stay Secure: Use a reputable antivirus program, keep your software and applications updated, and enable your firewall for additional protection.
