I was pleased to get through the end of the 2022 seasonal holidays without a zero-day exploit landing for Google Chrome if I’m being honest. Attackers do like to strike when security teams and consumers alike are kicking back, after all. In fact, the last security update for users of the Google Chrome desktop browser, Windows, Mac, and Linux versions, was back on December 13, 2022. That is the same day that Microsoft, Adobe, and others release their scheduled monthly security updates: Patch Tuesday. Fast forward to January 10, the first Patch Tuesday event of 2023, and Google has dropped security fixes for no less than 17 Chrome browser vulnerabilities.
