  • Escalation of privilege
  • Denial of service
  • Information disclosure
  • KASLR bypass
  • Arbitrary write to kernel memory
The image below shows the CVE IDs assigned to these exploits, a short description, and the level of threat they posed.

I agree AMD drivers are very unsafe and also no one should use Chrome or EDGE has they are seriously unsafe browsers. 😞


These latest two flaws mean Google has patched 12 zero-days in Chrome since the beginning of 2021. Google patched two zero-day Chrome flaws on September 13, marking its 10th zero-day patch for the year.

Not much sooner after Google patched one publicly disclosed zero-day exploit in Chrome did another one pop up.

"Just here to drop a chrome 0day. Yes you read that right," announced Twitter user "frust" earlier today (April 14).


@Gandalf_The_Grey looks like you have to leave all chrome/chromium based browsers and use Firefox only. 😁
