The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by
The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
prior to 42.0.2311.152. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities related to Adobe Flash :
- An unspecified security bypass flaw exists that allows
an attacker to disclose sensitive information.
- Multiple unspecified type confusion flaws exist that
allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-3077, CVE-2015-3084, CVE-2015-3086)
- Multiple memory corruption flaws exist due to improper
validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can
exploit these flaws, via specially crafted flash
content, to corrupt memory and execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-3078, CVE-2015-3089, CVE-2015-3090,
- An unspecified security bypass exists that allows a
context-dependent attacker to disclose sensitive
- An unspecified use-after-free error exists that allows
an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3080)
- Multiple validation bypass vulnerabilities exists that
allow an attacker to lead to write arbitrary data to the
file system. (CVE-2015-3082, CVE-2015-3083,
- An integer overflow condition exists due to improper
validation of user-supplied input. This allows a
context-dependent attacker to execute arbitrary code.
- A heap-based buffer overflow condition exists due to
improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote
attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code.
- Multiple unspecified memory leaks exist that allow an
attacker to bypass the Address Space Layout
Randomization (ASLR) feature. (CVE-2015-3091,
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
