If you have not updated your Google Chrome browser yet, you want to do it as soon as possible. That's because Google recently released an update to its Chrome browser that patched a zero-day exploit. This is especially urgent, as Google says there is some evidence that malicious parties actively exploit it.
This applies to almost all versions of Chrome, including Windows, Mac OS, Chrome OS, Linux, and Android. For Chrome versions on the desktop, the browser usually has a built-in refresh feature that automatically updates the browser while it is in use. All users just need to restart to apply the changes. That means you should do everything the next time you start Chrome, but updating now could be a better idea if you have the time.
The update should update your version of Chrome to version 72.0.3626.1
