A zero-day vulnerability has been discovered in Google Chrome versions prior to 100.0.4896.127.  A type of confusion vulnerability tracked as CVE-2022-1364, is said to be exploited in the wild.

This vulnerability affects the V8 component, which is used to parse JavaScript code in Google Chrome. A type of confusion refers to code errors in which an app begins data execution processes with a given “type” of input but is deceived into considering the input as a different “type”.  The “type confusion” causes logical mistakes in the memory of the software. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the browser.

We recommend organizations update to Chrome 100.0.4896.127 for Windows, Mac and Linux to avoid exploitation and mitigate any potential threats.
