Chrome Hack - will it impact Brave Chromium?


I just saw this news item - is it relevant to Brave/Chromium - how can we judge such concerns?
" [New Google Chrome Zero-Day Vulnerability Found Actively Exploited in the Wild]"



Hi @eddy.canuck,
I’m not sure about that. So let me cc @toml @Mattches on this.

Based on the article, 72.0.3626.121 have a patch for this vulnerability. And Brave 0.60.48 have a Chromium update to this version.


New Notice about serious bug in Chrome

If you upgrade to the latest version of Brave (out now) you will be safe, as we’ve upgraded to Chromium 72.0.3626.121. This was also confirmed by our Chief of InfoSec (@bcrypt on Twitter).
