Are you using Google Chrome? You should update it immediately to patch an existing zero-day vulnerability that is already being exploited out in the wild. You should do it right now, before anything else. Go on! I'll wait.
Done? Then feel free to relax and read the rest of the news.
Google Chrome is currently the most used browser in the world. And that makes it a very attractive target for all sorts of attacks. One such attack is happening now, and it prompted Google to issue an emergency patch.
The details of the exploit are kept hidden, for now, to give users more time to update. You should do that anyway, no matter what browser you are using.
With Firefox 85 out, all the major browsers have dropped the support for Adobe Flash. So I gathered some points of view on what this means for the industry, the developers, and the users. Enjoy!
I mentioned last week that WebRTC is now a standard adopted by W3C and IETF. This week I'm presenting you a new article on the Mozilla blog. It gives a good explanation of what this technology is and how it differs from other solutions.
Microsoft Edge can now run natively on M1 Mac devices. That's right! You can now use the default browser that ships with your OS to download a new one from Microsoft. Oh, the irony!
Speaking of Macs, Safari Technology Preview 119 is out as well. The list of changes is quite large, and you can check it in the official release notes.
That's all I have prepared for this issue. Have a great and productive week, keep yourselves safe, and I will see you next time!
