    That's strange.
    I have build 133, and when I click on About to check for updates, it says it's up-to-date.
    Not yet fully released?​

    Thanks.
    The link in Ron's post didn't state this information.

    Best regards,
    François

    Seems like these holes were quite serious, if I'm correct it could be used to even bypass the sandbox. That's why I would always advice to keep using AE, no matter how secure the browser is. On the other hand, these type of advanced exploits often don't get used in exploit-kits.

    Enabling Appcontainer protection in Chrome hidden settings could also do the same. The Appcontainer method might be even better, because it utilizes the Windows 10 native security.

    That link does now show the .133 release. It looks like they made a mistake and it has now been corrected.

    I'm not sure if this would have blocked these kind of holes. I mean, it was a sandbox bypass if I understood correctly.

    Well, AppContainer + Chrome built-in sandbox, that's two sandbox in a sandbox. To bypass one sandbox may be easy, but to bypass two different kind of sandboxes is much more difficult.

    OK I see, then I misunderstood. Then you would probably need a kernel exploit to exploit them both.

    I only ended up with Chrome because I needed Flashplayer to access content from a particular site, the other day. I couldn't block the install of
    Chrome, even though I didn't want it.
