Chrome & Windows 7 Bug Put Users At High Risk of Hacking

In a new revelation for Windows 7 & Chrome users there has been a bug identified in both by which a hacker can take control of your system using Chrome and communicate with crucial systems of Windows. Windows has core elements in the operating system that stop programs from communicating and interacting with any program or system outside of the operating system. These core elements were put in place so no foreign program can communicate with the core elements or operating system core files which then can be used for hacking, malware and etc… BUT Google has found a bug and has identified evidence which proves that hackers had devised a way to use CHROME to jump between programs and skip the core elements that stop communication with outside programs. Hackers are able to use the Windows Flaw to communicate with programs hence opening a door for hacking and a lot more.

Chrome was quick to resolve the issue and an update has been released which every user should update. Not only that once you have installed the update you need close the application completely and open it so the patch starts working properly. The seriousness of this issue was such as that the software had to be shutdown and restarted to be used again. Windows on the other hand is still working out to close the loophole. One quick solution for users is to update to Windows 10 immediately as the timeline for the resolution of the bug is undecided. One need to understand that huge number of machines worldwide are still operating on Windows 7 and the resolution is a must. A piece of advice from TechWrath team to all our readers is that update Chrome immediately and move from Windows 7 to Windows 10 to get your information and system secure.

  1. This is a big blow for security for Windows the heaps of money they charge for licensing of their products and when it comes to bugs such as this there are no financial penalties for these giants. I feel Microsoft should apologize for this and pay financial damages for the effected victims.
