Synopsis :

A web browser installed on the remote Windows host is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Windows host is
prior to 53.0.2785.143. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified use-after-free error exists in V8 that
allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to deference
already freed memory, resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5177)

- Multiple flaws exist that allow an attacker to cause an
unspecified impact. No other details are available.

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