The bugs affect the ability of the browser to check and run Javascript, leaving it open to malicious code, reported LifeHacker.

Only the Windows, Max and Linux versions have been updated so far, with Android, iOS and Chromebook users still waiting for the fix.

The company says the update is expected to automatically roll out over the coming days or weeks.

Update

Google Chrome browsers should automatically check for and issue updates when required.

However, users can manually check for updates by selecting the three-dot menu in the top-right corner then selecting Help > About Google Chrome.
