Google Chrome security researchers are warning users to change their default passwords after the company announced it was working on a “hazard vulnerability” for web applications.
In a blog post published on Thursday, Google said it would “continue to work with partners to provide security updates for our applications.”
Google’s security team, however, said it was investigating the vulnerability and that it was aware of reports that the vulnerability had been exploited before.
Google has released Chrome 52, and the update should now be installed, according to the company.
However, users are advised to change the default password, and to also use another password that doesn’t contain a word “password” as well as the word “crypt”.
