Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, and Brave have each issued critical security patches, reports Stack Diary.

NIST classifies the vulnerability as severe. Other companies’ applications are affected — the vulnerability is linked to code used to render WebP images, which are widely used.

Other apps, like Affinity, Gimp, LibreOffice, Telegram, many Android applications, and “cross-platform apps built with Flutter” are likewise affected, according to the site.
