RCE Exploit Released for Unpatched Chrome, Opera, and Brave Browsers
null RCE Exploit Released for Unpatched Chrome, Opera, and Brave Browsers
An Indian security researcher has publicly published a proof-of-concept (PoC) exploit code for a newly discovered flaw impacting Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers like Microsoft Edge, Opera, and Brave.
It appears that was able to put together the PoC by reverse-engineering the patch that Google's Chromium team pushed to the open-source component after details of the flaw were shared with the company.
"Getting popped with our own bugs wasn't on my bingo card for 2021" . "Not sure it was too smart of Google to add that regression test right away."
While Google has addressed the issue in the latest version of V8, it's yet to make its way to the stable channel, thereby leaving the browsers vulnerable to attacks. Google is expected to ship Chrome 90 later today, but it's not clear if the release will include a patch for the V8 flaw.
