Google Chrome users have been cautioned about a new software bug that allows hackers to steal login credentials
for Windows. These login details can be immediately reused, allow cybercriminals to "impersonate members of the organisation" and launch further attacks "on other users or gain access and control of IT resources". The terrifying new vulnerability was disclosed by security engineer Bosko Stankovic. Stankovic shared the Google Chrome glitch on security blog DefenseCode, where he revealed the flaw was present in a default configuration of Chrome running on Windows 10. "Currently, the attacker just needs to entice the victim (using fully updated Google Chrome and Windows) to visit his web site to be able to proceed and reuse victim's authentication credentials," Stankovic wrote.Update: Version 61.0.3163.79 should be safe.
