Google has released security updates today for its Chrome web browser, including a patch to address two zero-day vulnerabilities that were exploited in the wild.
The updates are part of Chrome version 95.0.4638.69, which is now available via the browser’s built-in udpate mechanism.
The two zero-days are CVE-2021-38000 and CVE-2021-38003, and are the 15th and 16th zero-days that Google has patched this year—the most Google has patched in Chrome in any single calendar year since the browser’s first release in 2008.
