CERT-In released a similar advisory following the release of Chrome 88.0.4324.146 last month. Since Google Chrome is one of the most common internet browsers, hackers are eager to exploit a known vulnerability as soon as a new version is launched.
The new Chrome 89 version will include a new feature called Privacy Sandbox. These features will provide a protected environment for personalization that also protects user privacy.
There’s a feature called Web Sharing to desktop computers in a new version of chrome. This feature can send and receive data web apps via the native sharing menu on Android.
