What’s in the latest Chrome update? Check for hacked passwords on mobile
Google this week released Chrome 86, adding a password checking feature to the browser’s iOS and Android versions, and warning desktop users of sites trying to trick them into visiting.
The Mountain View, Calif. company also paid out more than $76,000 in bounties to security researchers who reported some of the 35 vulnerabilities addressed in Chrome 86. One bug was marked “Critical,” Google’s most-serious threat level. (Critical vulnerabilities are rare in Chrome.) Seven others were tagged as “High,” the next threat level down. The critical flaw was reported by researcher Man Yue Mo of GitHub Security Lab.
