Google Chrome < 59.0.3071.104 Multiple Vulnerabilities (macOS)

high Nessus Plugin ID 100992
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is prior to 59.0.3071.104. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A security bypass vulnerability exists in the IndexedDB component that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to bypass the sandbox. (CVE-2017-5087)

- An out-of-bounds read error exists in the V8 component that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-5088)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Omnibox address bar component that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to spoof domains. (CVE-2017-5089)

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities exist that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to have a high severity impact.

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

Solution

Upgrade to Google Chrome version 59.0.3071.104 or later.
