As usual, no details are given. Google also states that various fixes have been made based on results from internal audits, fuzzing and other initiatives. Chrome will be rolled out to systems via the automatic update feature in the next few days. One can (and in this case should) also update the browser manually (via the menu and the About Google Chrome command). The latest build of the Chrome browser can also be downloaded here.
Tip: If in Chrome or Edge under Windows 7/8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2 comes an upgrade notice for the operating system, because this 2023 reaches the end of support, in the blog post Windows 7/8.1/Server 2012R2: Deactivate Google Chrome notification to upgrade to Windows 10 I have published the registry entries for various browsers to suppress the notice.
