Most unsafe browser in 2022 with 303 vulnerabilities

A new report has surfaced revealing that Google Chrome is the most vulnerable browser as of 2022 with a total of 303 vulnerabilities.

This information is based on data from the VulDB vulnerability database and was gathered between January 1st and October 5th of 2022. Although this number seems high, it’s important to note that the figures are cumulative and cover a span of just over 9 months.

Google Chrome is the only browser with new vulnerabilities in the five days in October. Recent ones include CVE-2022-3318, CVE-2022-3314, CVE-20221-3311, CVE-2022-3309, and CVE-2022-3307.

The CVE programme tracks security flaws and vulnerabilities across multiple platforms. The database does not list details for these flaws yet, but the report said they can lead to memory corruption on a computer.

Users can fix these by updating to Google Chrome version 106.0.5249.61.


Mozilla’s Firefox browser ranks second for vulnerabilities, with 117 of them.
