Update Chrome Immediately
November 17, 2020
The Department of Homeland Security cybersecurity agency, CISA, has confirmed two major vulnerabilities in Google Chrome that are actively being exploited and can allow attackers to take control of an affected system. Users of Chrome for Windows, Mac, and Linux are highly encouraged to update their browsers immediately and make sure Chrome is configured to perform automatic updates.
Users should be just as diligent about performing updates to Firefox, Safari, etc., since security vulnerabilities are not limited to Chrome.
As most of us will continue to be working from home for the foreseeable future, we must be especially mindful of working securely while working remotely.
If you have any questions regarding this advisory, please feel free to email the Office of Information Security.
