The Indian Government Issues High-Risk Warning To Google Chrome And Mozilla Users.

The Indian government issues a high-risk warning to Google Chrome and Mozilla users.

The Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) of the Indian government recently identified several vulnerabilities in Chrome and some Mozilla products. According to CERT-In, these vulnerabilities allowed hackers to access all of the users' data and even execute arbitrary code by circumventing all security mechanisms.

According to the Centre's Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), vulnerabilities in Chrome versions prior to 96.0.4664.209 could be exploited by hackers. Furthermore, due to vulnerabilities in Firefox, attackers can disclose sensitive information and circumvent security restrictions.

The Government said, Mozilla product vulnerabilities can affect software such as—Mozilla Firefox IOS version prior to 101; Mozilla Firefox Thunderbird version prior to 91.107; Mozilla Firefox ESR version prior to 91.10; and Mozilla Firefox version prior to 101.

According to CERT-In, these vulnerabilities allow attackers to deliver a denial of service attack on targeted systems. A denial-of-service (DoS) attack occurs when hackers prevent users from accessing information systems, devices, or other resources. Email, websites, and online accounts are among the services that are commonly targeted by such attacks.

The CERT-In has advised Firefox users to upgrade to OS 101, Firefox Thunderbird 91.10, Firefox ESR 91.10, and Mozilla Firefox 101 as a workaround.
