Vivid News 24: The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN), a government organization that issues alerts for operating system faults in the Microsoft Edge Web browser, recently found several new vulnerabilities. These bugs were the subject of an alert from the CERT-IN, which rated their severity as “high.”
Microsoft Edge (based on Chrome), according to CERT-IN, has several reported vulnerabilities that might be used by a remote attacker to escalate their privileges and get around security measures on the targeted machine.
Simply put, this means that attackers may be able to steal user information and get around security measures on the targeted machine due to flaws in the Microsoft browser. According to the federal agency, these flaws in Microsoft Edge might also provide hackers access to send a specially-crafted request to the targeted system.
The government agency’s analysis claims that Microsoft Edge versions before version 109.0.1518.61 are affected. Users are encouraged to download the most recent version of the browser to safeguard the aforementioned systems from vulnerabilities, according to CERT-IN. If you download the updated version, Microsoft has already released it with the vulnerabilities addressed.
Additionally, users are encouraged to update to the most recent version of the Microsoft Edge web browser. Microsoft Corp. is also investing $10 billion over several years in OpenAI, the ground-breaking artificial intelligence research facility that developed ChatGPT and DALL-E.
The announcement comes less than a week after the company announced that 10,000 employees would be let go as a result of declining demand for software. In that announcement, Microsoft pledged to keep hiring staff and funding its key objectives. The software company reveals its second-quarter financial results on Tuesday.
Microsoft did not reveal the amount of its investment on Monday, but a source familiar with the matter claimed that it amounts to $10 billion over several years. The funding from Microsoft “will enable us to continue our independent research and develop AI that is increasingly safe, practical, and potent,” according to a statement from OpenAI.
Microsoft, which invested $1 billion in OpenAI in 2019, is vying with Alphabet Inc., Amazon.com Inc., and Meta Platforms Inc. for control of the rapidly expanding market by attempting to get an advantage over some of the most well-known and sophisticated artificial intelligence systems.
