Regular readers of Scamicide (which I hope you are or will become) know how important it is to keep all of your computer, tablet and smartphone software up to date with the latest security patches.  Scammers and identity thieves are constantly identifying vulnerabilities in the many software programs we use and exploiting those vulnerabilities to make us victims of scams and identity theft.  Just as the scammers and identity thieves are busy identifying vulnerabilities, the makers of the software we use are just as busy trying to correct those vulnerabilities.  It is very important to protect yourself online by updating your computers, laptops and smartphones with the latest security updates.  Scammers and identity thieves take advantage of the fact that many people are slow to update their software with the latest patches.   Google has just released Google Chrome 27.0.1453.93 to correct multiple vulnerabilities discovered in Google Chrome that can lead to your becoming a victim of identity theft.


Here is a link from the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team which is a part of the Department of Homeland Security that contains a link to a Google Chrome Release which will enable you to download the necessary patches to keep yourself secure on your computer, laptop and smartphone.
