Microsoft has acknowledged the issues in its Edge browser. It has rolled out a new update v126.0.2592.68 with a security patch.

Microsoft Edge users are advised to update their browsers as soon as possible to secure their computers against cyber threats.

In a related development, last week, CERT-In detected similar security vulnerabilities in Google Pixel phones and Chrome browsers.

The security loophole allowed hackers to easily gain complete access to sensitive information in the devices and even be able to perform a Denial of Service (DoS) attack. It was reported vulnerabilities were actively exploited by bad actors.

Affected devices include--Pixel 5a 5G, Pixel 6a, 6, 6 Pro, Pixel 7, 7 Pro, 7a, Pixel 8, 8 Pro, 8a and Pixel Fold.
