My thoughts on Slackware, life and everything

Chromium 78.0.3904.87 addresses an exploit in the wild

The Chromium update of this week addresses a vulnerability for which an 0-day exploit is actively being used. It’s the CVE-2019-13720 (Use-after-free in audio) which was caught by Kaspersky’s exploit prevention program.

Fresh packages for Slackware 14.2 or -current are already available in my repository, so please upgrade at the earliest.

    Hopefully Chromium will offer an alternative to blind Firefox users in a few months, cf.:

    Cheers, Didier
