When one of the lead engineers at Google tweets, “Seriously, update your Chrome installs…like right this minute,” users of the internet browser need to take note.
Justin Schuh, a security and desktop engineer for Google Chrome, tweeted the warning Tuesday.
There's a flaw in the software that crooks are actively exploiting.
Google doesn't want to give them any ideas, so the company isn't saying much about the bug until more people have installed the update.
Select “Help,” then “About Google Chrome” to see if you're up to date.
If you're on a Chromebook, restart the computer.
Google said there's another unpatched problem that could affect people still on Windows 7.
The company suggests upgrading to Windows 10.
