high Nessus Plugin ID 39852
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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 2.0.172.37. Such versions are reportedly affected by multiple issues :

- A heap overflow exists when evaluating specially crafted regular expressions in JavaScript. This could lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code within the Google Chrome sandbox. (Issue 14719)

- A memory corruption issue exists in the renderer process that could cause a denial of service or possibly allow arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the logged on user. (CVE-2009-2556)

- Creating a Select object with a very large length can result in memory exhaustion, causing a denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade to Google Chrome 2.0.172.37 or later.
