high Nessus Plugin ID 181369



The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The version of FreeBSD installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the 3693eca5-f0d3-453c-9558-2353150495bb advisory.

- Use after free in MediaStream in Google Chrome prior to 116.0.5845.140 allowed a remote attacker to potentially exploit heap corruption via a crafted HTML page. (Chromium security severity: High) (CVE-2023-4572)

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