Google wants you to update Chrome right now

A warning by Justin Schuh comes in a form of a #PSA or a "Public Service Announcement", according to the engineer, while Google explained that "access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix".

Most users who saw the company's release didn't think too much about a run-of-the-mill Chrome update, which Google provides on a regular basis, sometimes for the smallest of bugs. And if that is the case, do yourself a solid and update Chrome, "like right this minute". The vulnerability exploits CVE-2019-5786, a security flaw and the only patch included in the Chrome 72.0.3626.121 version, released on March 1, 2019.

Chrome users are urged to check their browser to confirm they are running version 72.0.3626.121.

Meanwhile, for Android users, Google said that an update with a fix for CVE-2019-5786 will be available by visiting the Google Play store. "We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven't yet fixed", Google stated in a recent and related security notice.

FileReader is a embedded program in most browsers that allows web apps to read the contents of a user's local file system.

Google also says it is aware of the vulnerability being actively exploited in the wild. You will be shown your current browser version and be alerted if you have an update pending. When a thread incorrectly reuses that memory space, the data will have been overwritten and significantly changed, leading to confusion and ultimately, potentially, remote code execution. Just going to that page will trigger an update check, and Chrome will prompt you to relaunch it when finished.
