Stable Channel Update for Desktop


The stable channel has been updated to 71.0.3578.98 for Windows, Mac, and Linux, which will roll out over the coming days/weeks.

Security Fixes and Rewards

We would also like to thank all security researchers that worked with us during the development cycle to prevent security bugs from ever reaching the stable channel.

Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.

This update includes 1 security fix contributed by external researchers. Please see the Chrome Security Page for more information.
