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


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is prior to 64.0.3282.140. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the V8 JavaScript engine as noted in Chrome stable channel update release notes for February 1st, 2018. Please refer to the release notes for additional information.
