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 21.0.1180.89 and is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An out-of-bounds read error exists related to line-breaking. (CVE-2012-2865)

- Variable casting errors exist related to 'run-ins' and XSL transformations. (CVE-2012-2866, CVE-2012-2871)

- Cross-site scripting is possible during the SSL interstitial process. (CVE-2012-2872)

Successful exploitation of any of these issues could lead to an application crash or arbitrary code execution, subject to the user's privileges.
