Google has released a security update for the Google Chrome web browser, addressing certain issues. One of these issues is considered to be a severe risk – the  zero day vulnerability. For a staggering 3 billion Chrome users worldwide, the discovery of the first known Zero Day vulnerability on April 11 added to the urgency to update their browsers. In a blog post, Google acknowledged the zero day. According to Forbes, zero day affects Chrome on Windows, Mac and Linux.
