high Nessus Plugin ID 117429
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.


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


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is prior to 69.0.3497.92. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the Google Chrome stable channel update release notes for 2018/09/11.

- An improper update of the WebAssembly dispatch table in WebAssembly in Google Chrome prior to 69.0.3497.92 allowed a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code inside a sandbox via a crafted HTML page (CVE-2018-17458).

- Incorrect handling of clicks in the omnibox in Navigation in Google Chrome prior to 69.0.3497.92 allowed a remote attacker to spoof the contents of the Omnibox (URL bar) via a crafted HTML page (CVE-2018-17459).

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


Upgrade to Google Chrome version 69.0.3497.92 or later.
