Google Chrome < 22.214.171.124 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 39449
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 126.96.36.199. 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.
SolutionUpgrade to Google Chrome 188.8.131.52 or later.
