On March 25th, 2022 Google published a security advisory referencing CVE-2022-1096 indicating that it is “aware that an exploit for CVE-2022-1096 exists in the wild.”
Google has not released any details on the method of exploit, or other specifics of the exploit.
Simultaneously, Google has released Chrome version 99.0.4844.84 to address this vulnerability which is available on the Stable Desktop channel.
This is the second zero-day Chrome vulnerability with exploits in the wild in 2022 with the first being CVE-2022-0609 (also resolved via update in February).
Because of Google’s admission that an exploit already exists for this vulnerability and the release of an update to resolve it, it is strongly recommended that all organizations which can update to the latest Chrome version 99.0.4844.84 do so.
While Google Chrome can be manually updated, the level of effort required and lack of feedback and logging may not make this the preferred option for most organizations.
If your organization maintains a centralized software patch management platform that can handle upgrading third-party applications, they can be used to deploy the latest Google Chrome version to address the vulnerability. Examples of such solutions include Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Configuration Manager, Microsoft Intune) and Kaseya VSA with Software Management.
Microsoft Group Policy also provides options both to force Chrome to automatically update via custom Google Chrome administrative templates or to deploy Google Chrome through Software installation computer group policies.
