Google has urged millions of Chrome users to update their browsers after uncovering a malicious attack that lets hackers take control of computers.

The tech giant warned cybercriminals are using malicious pop-up windows or websites to gain access to an unsuspecting victim’s personal information.

A ‘critical’ update has been rolled out, which closes the loophole that makes your servers vulnerable to what’s called a ‘zero day’ attack.

The name stems from the fact a perpetrator found a weakness before the manufacturer, leaving zero days to fix the issue because the server has already been compromised. 

The update can be accessed in Google’s Chrome browser under the ‘Settings’ section.
