Google Chrome < 1.0.154.53 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 39449

Synopsis

The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is earlier than 1.0.154.53. Such versions are reportedly affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- The browser uses the HTTP Host header to determine the context of a 4xx/5xx CONNECT response from a proxy server. This could allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to execute arbitrary script code in the context of a legitimate server, circumventing the browser's same- origin policy.

- The browser displays a cached certificate for 4xx/5xx CONNECT response pages from a proxy server. A man-in- the-middle attacker could exploit this by displaying a spoofed web page with the valid certificate of a legitimate website.

Solution

Upgrade to Google Chrome 1.0.154.53 or later.
