Potential Security Issue: Google Chrome Update Mechanism Broken, Erroneously Claims up to Date for Any/All Versions

Chrome has a serious version update bug.

Side-by-side machines claim that “Google Chrome is up to date”, but as shown below, three machines have radically different versions, all claimed “up to date”.

With all machines running macOS Sierra:

  • iMac 5K shows version 44.0.2403.157 (64-bit).
  • 2013 Mac Pro shows version 48.0.2564.116 (64-bit)
  • 2013 MacBook Pro shows version 54.0.2840.59 (64-bit), which is the latest version.

It is ironic that a “web browser built for... security” is so insecure that it cannot properly update itself.

Also, color management remains broken using Google Chrome 54.0.2840.59, as tested both on my Mac Pro and on my iMac 5K.
