After conducting research, Atlas VPN, a division of Nord security, identified Google Chrome as the most risky browser with regard to security flaws. The most widely used online browser in the world, Google Chrome, has been identified as the most insecure by Atlas VPN, a division of Nord security. This finding may worry millions of Google Chrome users.
The well-known web browser has been found to have a total of 3,159 cumulative vulnerabilities, of which 303 have been identified this year. The Atlas VPN team recently announced the total number of vulnerabilities without disclosing the severity. The VulDB vulnerability database provided the data.
With 117 vulnerabilities, Mozilla’s Firefox comes in second place, followed by Microsoft Edge with 103 vulnerabilities—a 61% increase from the year before. According to the research, it has had a total of 806 vulnerabilities since its debut. After Google Chrome, Apple’s Safari is the second-most popular browser globally. It is also the safest browser, with only 26 vulnerabilities anticipated for 2022 and 1,139 vulnerabilities overall since its release. The research asks users to use only reputable providers and cautions them to be especially vigilant when selecting plug-ins as they can be dangerous.
The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN), a cyber security organisation, recently released a high-severity advisory identifying vulnerabilities in Chrome that allow hackers to enter the system and carry out destructive actions. Of all the corporations, Google has one of the most open systems for reporting vulnerabilities, and experts predict that this system will be updated to address the issue. By updating to the newest version of their browser, current users can protect themselves.
