Google Chrome < 54.0.2840.87 V8 Globals Stable Map Assumption Handling RCE (macOS)

Synopsis :

A web browser installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is
affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X
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.
