(NewsNation) – If you use Google Chrome as your Internet browser, be aware: Your information may be compromised.
Google issued a warning warning billions of Chrome users that the browser has been successfully targeted by hackers, listing 30 security flaws, including seven that are considered to have a “High” threat level.
The tech company is now releasing an update within the next few days to fix the bugs that are affecting Windows, macOS and Linux, according to the company statement.
It is unclear who hacked the company and whether any user’s security was compromised.
Google said additional hacking details are currently limited by the company “until a majority of users are updated with a fix.”
“We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third-party library on which other projects similarly depend, but which has not yet been fixed,” the company said.
Chrome users can manually update their browsers through the settings features, but the browsers will automatically update within a few days. To find options, click on the three dots in the upper right corner of the browser and scroll down.
