One of these vulnerabilities is classified as critical, and some of the vulnerabilities are classified as High. Other issues have been tracked down and fixed internally through audits and fuzzing. So, the browser should be updated quickly. The Chrome version for Windows, Mac and Linux will be rolled out to systems via the automatic update function in the next few days.
