(NewsNation) – If you use Google Chrome as your internet browser, be careful: your information could be compromised.
Google issued an alert warning billions of Chrome users that the browser had been successfully attacked by hackers, listing 30 vulnerabilities, including seven with a “high” threat level.
The tech company will now release an update within the next few days to fix the bugs affecting Windows, macOS and Linux, according to the company statement.
It’s unclear who hacked the company and whether users’ security was compromised.
Google said further hack details are currently being restricted by the company “until the majority of users are updated with a fix.”
“We will also maintain limitations when the bug exists in a third-party library that other projects similarly depend on but have not yet fixed,” the company said.
Chrome users can update their browsers manually through the settings features, but browsers will update automatically within a few days. To find Settings, click the three dots in the top right corner of the browser and scroll down.
