Google Chrome < 0.2.149.29 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 34197
SynopsisThe remote host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is earlier than 0.2.149.29. Such versions are reportedly affected by several issues :
- A buffer overflow involving long filenames that display in the 'Save As...' dialog could lead to arbitrary code execution (Issue #1414).
- A buffer overflow in handling of link targets displayed in the status area when a user hovers over a link could lead to arbitrary code execution (Fix #1797).
- An out-of-bounds memory read when parsing URLs ending in ':%' could cause the application itself to crash (Issue #122).
- The default Downloads directory is set to Desktop, which could lead to malicious cluttering of the desktop with unwanted downloads and even execution of arbitrary programs (Fix #17933).
SolutionUpgrade to Google Chrome 0.2.149.29.
