CVE-2016-1708

HIGH
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The Chrome Web Store inline-installation implementation in the Extensions subsystem in Google Chrome before 52.0.2743.82 does not properly consider object lifetimes during progress observation, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted web site.
