CERT-In alerts users that Microsoft Edge bugs could harm systems

Users have been made aware of serious vulnerabilities in Microsoft Edge by India's CERT-In (Indian Computer Emergency Response Team) which might allow attackers to compromise systems. Affected versions up to 126.0.2592.81 are listed in the alert, which also highlights "Use-after-free in Dawn and Swiftshader" as a potential exploit. CERT-In underlined that by using prepared webpages, these issues might enable attackers to execute arbitrary code.


"Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) which could allow an attacker to compromise the targeted system," said the CERT-In advisory.


According to the cyber security agency, these vulnerabilities exist in Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) due to "Use-after-free in Dawn and Swiftshader". An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by persuading a victim to visit a specially crafted webpage, it said.


"Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code and compromise the targeted system," it added.


CERT-In advised users to apply appropriate security updates as mentioned by the company.
