Google has patched a high severity vulnerability for the desktop version of the Chrome browser. The latest update fixes an important security vulnerability that could cause problems for users.

The company says that the vulnerability identified as CVE-2022-2856 is being actively exploited, so it is crucial for users to update their browsers immediately. Overall, Google doesn’t want to say much about the vulnerability until most of the Chrome instances are fixed. What it says though is that this is an inappropriate input validation error.
