The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is a version prior to 25.0.1364.97. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified memory corruption error exists related to 'web audio node'. (CVE-2013-0879)

- Use-after-free errors exist related to database and URL handling. (CVE-2013-0880, CVE-2013-0898)

- An error exists related to improper loading of 'NaCl'.

- The 'web store' is granted too many API permissions.

- User gestures are not properly checked with respect to dangerous file downloads. (CVE-2013-0889)

- An unspecified memory safety issue exists in the IPC layer. (CVE-2013-0890)

- Integer overflow errors exist related to blob and 'Opus' handling. (CVE-2013-0891, CVE-2013-0899)
