high Nessus Plugin ID 56391
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.


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


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is earlier than 14.0.835.202. It therefore is potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Use-after-free errors exist that are related to text line box handling and the v8 JavaScript engine bindings. (CVE-2011-2876, CVE-2011-2880)

- An unspecified error exists related to stale fonts in SVG text handling. (CVE-2011-2877)

- A cross-origin violation error exists that could allow access to the window prototype. (CVE-2011-2878)

- Lifetime and threading errors exist that are related to audio node handling. (CVE-2011-2879)

- Unspecified errors related to hidden v8 objects and shader translators exist that could allow memory corruption. (CVE-2011-2881, CVE-2011-3873)
