Google released Chrome 80 which handles vulnerabilities an attacker could exploit to take control of an affected system.
The release, which is technically version 80.0.3987.87 is for the Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. Beginning with this release, Google begins the rollout of a new cookie classification system, which the company claims is “secure by default.”
The changes were originally announced in May 2019 when Google also provided additional information for developers in order to prepare for the update.
And while the new behavior will be included in Chrome 80, the actual rollout of the new cookie classification system is projected to kick off later this month with only a small number of users.
The rollout will then continue throughout the next few weeks with even more users as Google collects feedbacks and determines the overall reliability.
