Google has patched two more zero-day flaws in the Chrome web browser for desktop, making it the fourth and fifth actively exploited vulnerabilities addressed by the search giant in recent weeks.

The company released 86.0.4240.198 for Windows, Mac, and Linux, which it said will be rolling out over the coming days/weeks to all users.

Tracked as CVE-2020-16013 and CVE-2020-16017, the flaws were discovered and reported to Google by “anonymous” sources, unlike previous cases, which were uncovered by the company’s Project Zero elite security team.

Google acknowledged that exploits for both the vulnerabilities exist in the wild but stopped short of sharing more specifics to allow a majority of users to install the fixes.
