Google Chrome < 17.0.963.78 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 58328
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 17.0.963.78 and is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities:
- The application does not properly handle history navigation.
- An unspecified universal cross-site scripting issue exists.
By exploiting these vulnerabilities in combination, an attacker could bypass Chrome's sandbox and execute arbitrary code on the target machine as demonstrated in March 2012 at Google's Pwnium competition.
SolutionUpgrade to Google Chrome 17.0.963.78 or later.
