Google Chrome < 17.0.963.78 Code Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote host contains a web browser that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Google Chrome earlier than 17.0.963.78 are potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The application does not properly handle history navigation.

- An unspecified universal cross-site scripting issue exists.

By exploiting these vulnerabilities in combination, an attacker could bypass Chrome's sandbox and execute arbitrary code on the target machine as demonstrated in March 2012 at Google's Pwnium competition.

Solution

Upgrade to Google Chrome 17.0.963.78 or later.
