Security Fixes
Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. 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.
  • Intel devices on 3.8 kernels received the KPTI mitigation against Meltdown with Chrome OS 66. All Chrome OS devices are now protected against Meltdown.
If you find new issues, please let us know by visiting our forum or filing a bug. Interested in switching channels? Find out how. You can submit feedback using ‘Report an issue...’ in the Chrome menu (3 vertical dots in the upper right corner of the browser).

Jason Prescott, Even though access to bug details and links has been "restricted", I have evidence that the entire Lenovo N-Series of Chromebooks is affected by a bug that prevents the OS from updating beyond version 65.0.3325.184.

This posted Thursday, April 26:

let's hold off on more comments for now, Google Engineers are very aware of the issue and expect to have a fix next week.

Keyboard overlay (CTRL ALT /) missing in this update--replaced with text keyboard shortcuts. How do you get the keyboard overlay back?

Thanks Mike!

Scott, I Found a way to get (ctrl+alt+/) shortcut back:

type chrome://flags into Chrome's address bar. On the flags page, search for and change a flag called "Enable Keyboard Shortcut Viewer" from Default to Disabled.

My Google Pixelbook has been updated to Chrome OS 66, and I now have OS crashing problems that were absent with 65. I cannot connect to Chase Bank without the OS Crashing. I cannot change locations in my VPN without the OS crashing.

After installing 66 all App folders had lost their identifying name and had been moved around from where I had them. So I renamed them and moved them around. Now with each new crash they are again unnamed and moved.

I have closed down my Pixelbook and restarted with no change. There is definitely something wrong.

Chrome Version 66 for Windows seems to have a critical Bug in the DEV Engine: The Debugger chrashes after some single steps. This occurs very often and makes Chrome unusable for developers. This behavior can be reconstructed f.e. on home page: Expand to structured view and set brakepoint on Line 8541 -> press several times F10. After 5 ... 15 times - the Debugger crashes. It seems to be a result of meltdown hotfix. Please fix the fix!

Stefan, Report this issue where it will get the attention needed:
