Chrome 119 Patches 15 Vulnerabilities

Chrome 119 is rolling out to Linux, macOS, and Windows users with patches for 15 vulnerabilities.

Google on Tuesday announced the release of Chrome 119 to the stable channel with patches for 15 vulnerabilities, including 13 reported by external researchers.

Three of the externally reported bugs have a severity rating of ‘high’, and are described as inappropriate implementation in Payments (CVE-2023-5480), insufficient data validation in USB (CVE-2023-5482), and integer overflow in USB (CVE-2023-5849).

Google says in its advisory that it has paid out $16,000 for the first flaw and $11,000 for the second, and that it has yet to determine the amount to be awarded for the third issue.

Of the remaining 10 security defects reported by external researchers, eight are rated ‘medium severity’, and two have a severity rating of ‘low’.

Half of the medium-severity bugs are use-after-free issues impacting Chrome’s Printing, Profiles, Reading Mode, and Side Panel components. The other half includes two incorrect security UI issues and two inappropriate implementation flaws in Downloads.

The low-severity defects addressed this week include an inappropriate implementation in WebApp Provider and an incorrect security UI in ‘Picture In Picture’, Google notes.

The internet giant says it has paid out over $40,000 in bug bounty rewards to the reporting researchers. However, with the bounties for three of the bugs yet to be determined, the final amount might be much higher.

As usual, Google is keeping access to the bugs restricted “until a majority of users are updated with a fix”.

The latest Chrome iteration is now rolling out to users as version 119.0.6045.105 for Linux and macOS, and as versions 119.0.6045.105/.106 for Windows.

Chrome for Android too was updated on Tuesday, bringing the same security fixes as the desktop version of the browser, Google says. Chrome 119 was pushed to iOS as well.

Google makes no mention of any of these vulnerabilities being exploited in the wild.
