critical Nessus Plugin ID 73711
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 Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Mac OS X host is a version prior to 34.0.1847.131. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A buffer overflow error exists related to the included version of Flash Player. (CVE-2014-0515)

- Type confusion errors exist related to the V8 JavaScript engine and DOM handling. (CVE-2014-1730, CVE-2014-1731)

- A use-after-free error exists related to speech recognition processing. (CVE-2014-1732)

- An error exists related to compiling in 'Seccomp-BPF'.

- Various, unspecified errors exist. (CVE-2014-1734)

- Various, unspecified errors exist related to the V8 JavaScript engine. (CVE-2014-1735)

- An integer overflow error exists related to the V8 JavaScript engine. (CVE-2014-1736)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
