Update your Chromium to 93.0.4577.82

Today, I uploaded a set of Chromium 93.0.4577.82 packages for Slackware 14.2 and -current (32-bit as well as 64-bit).

According to yesterday’s official announcement on the Google blog, this release patches a number of vulnerabilites and two of them are zero-day vulnerabilities that are actively being exploited online.

The advice is to upgrade Chromium on your Slackware 14.2 and -current computers as soon as possible.

The ungoogled-chromium sources are lagging behind as usual, but I have hopes that a new source tarball will appear soon, now that we have a Chromium update which addresses multiple zero-days. Eloston, the project maintainer, seems AWOL but several contributors have a working patch set ready.

Stay safe! Eric

  2. The x86 version of chromium 93.0.4577.82 package does not work.
    It crashes immediately on startup:

    Thanks, david

    1. You should subscribe to the RSS feed of my package ChangeLog. It’s even shown on the every page of this blog, in a WordPress widget half-way the right column.
      The changelog for Chromium reads (and has been reading like this since version 90):

      The 32bit package of Chromium 93.x still crashes on 14.2 and -current,
      unless you add ‘–disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox’ as startup parameter.
