How to Get Google Chrome’s Emergency Patch Update

Google Chrome’s Emergency Patch

A bug on Google Chrome was recently reported by an anonymous user and in response,  Google quickly released Google Chrome’s emergency patch. This emergency patch update addresses the exploit for  CVE-2022-1096 which is also known as a “Type Confusion in V8.”

There’s not a lot of information about CVE-2022-1096, its vulnerability and risks, at least publicly. What we know for certain is that Google urges its 3.2 billion users to update their Google Chrome immediately.  This update is the Chrome version 99.0.4844.84, available for Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Google is being cautious about sharing more information about the update until the majority of Chrome users have updated their browsers. According to Google, it may take more or less two weeks before the update reaches most, if not all, of its user base.

How to Update your Google Chrome

Normally, your Google Chrome would update automatically. If that’s the case, you’re all covered and you have nothing to worry about. However, if you never restart your browser or something goes wrong, you might have to manually get Google Chrome’s emergency patch.

The easiest way to manually update is by doing the following:

  1. Clicking the settings on the top right corner of your browser
  2. Under Help > click About Google Chrome
  3. You should be able to update your browser from there. You are going to have to relaunch your browser to apply the update.
