Medium Nessus Plugin ID 38154
SynopsisThe remote host contains a web browser that is affected by a same origin policy bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is earlier than 220.127.116.11. Such versions are reportedly affected by an issue when handling URLs with a 'chromehtml:' protocol that could allow an attacker to run scripts of his choosing on any page or enumerate files on the local disk.
If a user has Google Chrome installed, visiting an attacker-controlled web page in another browser could cause Google Chrome to launch, open multiple tabs, and load scripts that run after navigating to a URL of the attacker's choice.
SolutionUpgrade to Google Chrome 18.104.22.168 or later.
