, a flaw in software security that is unknown to users and manufacturers of the product.

This zero-day vulnerability was described as a "stack overflow" memory corruption bug in the

In a statement, Google explained that the software bug was exploited in various attacks before a security researcher, Mattias Buelens, reported the problem on January 24 and it was tracked as



Two days after Buelens' report, Google's security team released a statement on attacks carried out by

North Korean hackers

against the cybersecurity community.

Some of these attacks consisted of luring security researchers to a blog where cyber attackers took advantage of Chrome's zero-day vulnerability to run malware on their systems.
