CurveBall vunerability Subject description: Google Chrome too
The Cryptographic API in Windows 10 is vunerable to spoofing and other naughty stuff. This is not good, as the WHOLE cryptograhic function is compromized. In particular the Edge Browser, as it faces the Wide Area Network (Outsude World).
And while this is puppy, and we don't need no stinking windows or its edge browser... quite a few people here use the Chrome Browser that is also vunerable.
And even in the write-up the Chrome aspect of the vector attack is to put it mildly in fine print.
So the Chrome Browser needs a check-up from the neck-up.
