Synopsis :

A web browser installed on the remote Mac OS X host is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Mac OS X 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.
(CVE-2016-5178)

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