Google Chrome < 1.0.154.59 ChromeHTML URI Handling Privilege Escalation

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by a same
origin policy bypass vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is earlier
than 1.0.154.59. Such versions are reportedly affected by an issue
when handling URLs with a 'chromehtml:' protocol that could allow an
attacker to run scripts of his choosing on any page or enumerate files
on the local disk.

If a user has Google Chrome installed, visiting an attacker-controlled
web page in another browser could cause Google Chrome to launch, open
multiple tabs, and load scripts that run after navigating to a URL of
the attacker's choice.
