Google Chrome < 2.0.172.43 Remote Code Execution

High

Synopsis

The remote host contains a web browser that is vulnerable to a remote code execution attack.

Description

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is earlier than 2.0.172.43. Such versions have a flaw in the V8 Javascript engine which could potentially allow specially-crafted Javascript on a eb page to read unauthorize memory, bypassing security checks. An attacker could exploit this to run arbitrary code within the Chrome sand-box.

Solution

Upgrade to Google Chrome 2.0.172.43 or later.
