Google Chrome < 54.0.2840.87 V8 Globals Stable Map Assumption Handling RCE

This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

A web browser installed on the remote Windows host is affected by a
remote code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Windows host is
prior to 54.0.2840.87. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code
execution vulnerability in the V8 component due to an out-of-bounds
access error that occurs when handling stable map assumptions for
globals. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a
specially crafted website, to cause a denial of service condition or
the execution of arbitrary code.

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