https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2019/03/06/serious-chrome-zero-day-google-says-update-right-this-minute/ [nakedsecurity.sophos.com]:
Chrome users, make sure you’ve got the very latest version.

Or, as Justin Schuh, one of Chrome’s well-known security researchers, put it [twitter.com]:

[L]ike, seriously, update your Chrome installs… like right this minute.

This also applies to "de-googled" versions such as Chromium...

If you are running on Linux check for updates!

I assume this must also apply to all the other chromium browsers such as Opera and Vivaldi

Don't use that one either ... Blink does a pretty good job across the board, but even in spite of that, anything with Blink has been so abused with regard to privacy these days, that it's hardly even worth looking at as any real option for browsing. If I was hobbled with slow connection speeds and limited RAM, I too might be stuck having to use a Blink rendering engine product as well. Open Source Chromium took itself off the table as soon as it was learned that portions of it were "Google Contributed" --

Sure, Mozilla might have it's own issues along the way too, it might be a bit slower and somewhat clunkier in some certain circles, but the only thing that saves Firefox for us is the fact that we can still ramp it down and keep it from phoning home as often as Chrome does - We also don't need to install as many extensions in order to help maintain it's over all performance as it relates to privacy. Couple that with our RAM and connection speeds, we're pretty well set for the optimal end user experience without having to depend on anything with the Blink rendering engine.

Also applies to the "Brave" browser.
