The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is earlier than 23.0.1271.97 and is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Use-after-free errors exist related to visibility events and the URL loader. (CVE-2012-5139, CVE-2012-5140)

- An unspecified error exists related to instantiation of the 'Chromoting' client plugin. (CVE-2012-5141)

- The bundled version of Adobe Flash Player contains flaws that can lead to arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2012-5676, CVE-2012-5677, CVE-2012-5678)

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