Google Chrome < 23.0.1271.95 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 63110
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 23.0.1271.95 and is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A use-after-free error exists related to media source handling. (CVE-2012-5137)

- An unspecified error exists related to file path handling. (CVE-2012-5138)

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


Upgrade to Google Chrome 23.0.1271.95 or later.
