Microsoft has released an important security update for its Edge browser. It fixes several vulnerabilities, some of which have been marked with a risk level of “high”.

The patch for Microsoft Edge is now available and according to the Federal Office for Security in Information Technology to be installed urgently. As a rule, however, this happens automatically when you use the browser. To be on the safe side, you can enter “edge://settings/help” in the address line and have the browser check for updates. You can also find the menu at the top right via the three dots “Help and feedback” / “Info about Microsoft Edge”.

Without the update, attackers could use certain vulnerabilities to gain access rights, execute malicious code, open files, or modify them. However, it is not known whether this critical vulnerability has already been actively exploited.

In Microsoft’s release notes there is an overview of the 32 vulnerabilities that have been fixed. A large part of the improvements are based on Google’s “Project Chromium”, which is intended to ensure a safer Internet on an open source basis.
