If you have Google Chrome installed on your PC or Mac computer, we STRONGLY recommend you security update it asap.
If you are not sure how to do the update on a Windows or Mac computer, we have included a video and some image screenshots below to assist.

The reason to do the update: We have just learned about a new Zero-day exploit that is being used against the Google Chrome Web Browser. To prevent the attack from affecting your computer and network, Google has released a patch which takes about 10 secs to install.

We suggest you update your Chrome browser ASAP and share this blog article with other clients, customers, family & friends (and even LinkedIn Groups, Facebook Community & Business groups if you want), — as in, share it with everyone you possibly can who may use the Google Chrome web browser on a Mac or PC/ Windows computer.

Info about this Zero-day exploit is in this article (click here to view it — it has also been reported on many other authority websites on the internet too). Basically, if your Google Chrome web browser isn’t updated with the patch mentioned above, and you visit a website using Google Chrome, and the website you visit has been infected with specific piece of malware; the owner of the malware can inject your Chrome browser with hidden code… which allows them (the creator of the malware… who has now hacked your computer) to then have remote access to your whole network.
