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 49.0.2623.87. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities :

- A type confusion error exists in the Blink rendering
engine that allows a remote attacker, via a malicious
website, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1643)

- A use-after-free error exists in the Blink rendering
engine that allows a remote attacker, via a malicious
website, to deference already freed memory, resulting
in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1644)

- An out-of-bounds write error exists in PDFium, the PDF
rendering library, that allows a remote attacker to
manipulate the system memory, resulting the execution
of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1645)
