Puffin Secure Browser fixed today’s zero-day vulnerability yesterday

A new zero-day vulnerability in Google Chrome, tracked as CVE-2019–5786, is actively exploited in attacks in the wild.

Google experts only revealed that the CVE-2019–5786 flaw is a use-after-free vulnerability in the FileReader component of the Chrome browser. FileReader is a standard API that allows web applications to asynchronously read the contents of files stored on a computer, using ‘File’ or ‘Blob’ objects to specify the file or data to read. “Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix,” reads the security advisory published by Google. “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.”

In case you do not understand the meaning of the above paragraph, you can simply install Puffin Secure Browser and no virus can infect your PC, zero-day or not. Puffin Secure Browser fixed today’s zero-day vulnerability yesterday (in fact, two months ago when Puffin Secure Browser was first launched).
