Buggy Google Chrome Update Behind Recent Unbootable Macs

Google Keystone version 1.2.13.75 of contained a bug that damages the file system on macOS devices with System Integrity Protection (SIP) disabled.

Most users won't have a reason to disable SIP, but it's thought many video editors do so to work with the external audio and video devices used in professional editing.

Google has posted a support article on how to resolve this issue by removing the current Google updater package and then recreating the /var symlink. But on Tuesday evening, Google told users via its support forums that it had "recently discovered that a Chrome update may have shipped with a bug that damages the file system on MacOS machines" and "paused the release while we finalise a new update that addresses the problem".

Anyone who had disabled SIP or was running a Mac with OS X 10.10 Yosemite or earlier, which don't support the feature, could have been affected.

Apparently, video editors may have raised the alarm about the issue first because disabling SIP is a requirement to run third-party graphics cards.

Google has published instructions on how to fix an affected machine, which involves booting into recovery mode and using the Terminal application.

Then reboot. This will remove the affected version of Google Software Update, then restore the damaged portion of the file system. At that time Avid gave the impression that the issue was related to its own software. At this time, most affected Avid customers have recovered from this issue by reinstalling their macOS. Over the past 36 hours, the deep dive of due diligence working closely with Apple, PACE and other partners exhausted all options and we've landed in the right place as quickly as possible.
