Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
prior to 43.0.2357.130. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities :

- A scheme validation error exists in WebUI. A remote
attacker can exploit this to have an unspecified impact.
(CVE-2015-1266)

- A cross-origin bypass vulnerability exists in Blink due
to an unspecified flaw that is triggered when handling
the creation context passed through public APIs. A
remote attacker can exploit this to bypass the
cross-origin policy. (CVE-2015-1267)

- A cross-origin bypass vulnerability exists in Blink due
to an unspecified flaw in its V8 bindings. A remote
attacker can exploit this to bypass the cross-origin
policy. (CVE-2015-1268)

- A normalization bypass vulnerability exists in the
HSTS/HPKP preload list. A remote attacker can exploit
this to bypass HSTS/HPKP preloads and have a connection
use HTTP instead of the expected HTTPS. (CVE-2015-1269)

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