Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Windows host is
prior to 43.0.2357.65. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities :

- A Use-after-free memory error exists in the
SpeechRecognitionClient implementation that allows
remote attackers, using a crafted document, to execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1251)

- The Write() and DoWrite() methods of the class
PartialCircularBuffer do not properly handle wraps.
A remote attacker, by using write operations with a
large amount of data, can exploit this to bypass the
sandbox protection or cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2015-1252)

- The DOM implementation in Blink does not properly
handle SCRIPT elements during adjustment of DOM node
locations. A remote attacker, using crafted JavaScript
code that appends a child to a SCRIPT element, can
exploit this flaw to bypass the same origin policy.
(CVE-2015-1253)

- The 'core/dom/Document.cpp' in Blink enables the
inheritance of the 'designMode' attribute. A remote
attacker, using a crafted web page, can utilize this to
bypass the same origin policy via the availability of
editing. (CVE-2015-1254)

- A use-after-free memory error exists in the WebAudio
implementation when handling the stop action for an
audio track. A remote attacker can exploit this to
cause a denial of service or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1255)

- A use-after-free memory error exists in the SVG
implementation in Blink, related to the improper
handling of a shadow tree for a use element. A remote
attacker, using a crafted document, can exploit this
to cause a denial of service or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1256)

- The SVG implementation in Blink does not properly handle
an insufficient number of values in an feColorMatrix
filter. A remote attacker, using a crafted document, can
exploit this to cause a denial of service via a
container overflow. (CVE-2015-1257)

- The libvpx library code was not compiled with an
appropriate '--size-limit' value. This allows a remote
attacker, using a crafted frame size in VP9 video data,
to trigger a negative value for a size field, thus
causing a denial of service or possibly having other
impact. (CVE-2015-1258)

- Google PDFium does not properly initialize memory. A
remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of
service or possibly have other unspecified impact.
(CVE-2015-1259)

- Multiple use-after-free memory errors exist the WebRTC
implementation. A remote attacker can exploit these, by
using a crafted JavaScript code that executes upon
completion of a getUserMedia request, to cause a denial
of service or possibly have other unspecified impact.
(CVE-2015-1260)

- The file 'HarfBuzzShaper.cpp' in Blink does not properly
initialize a certain width field. A remote attacker,
using crafted Unicode text, can exploit this to cause a
denial of service or have other unspecified impact.
(CVE-2015-1262)

- The Spellcheck API implementation does not use an HTTPS
session for downloading a Hunspell dictionary. A
man-in-the-middle attacker, using a crafted file, can
exploit this flaw to deliver incorrect spelling
suggestions or possibly have other unspecified impact.
(CVE-2015-1263)

- A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists that
is related to the Bookmarks feature. A remote attacker,
using crafted data, can exploit this to inject arbitrary
web script or HTML. (CVE-2015-1264)

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities exist that allow an
attacker to cause a denial of service or possibly have
other impact via unknown vectors. (CVE-2015-1265)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
