Google Chrome < 37.0.2062.124 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

high Nessus Plugin ID 77862
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.

Synopsis

The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by a signature forgery vulnerability.

Description

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Mac OS X host is a version prior to 37.0.2062.124. It is, therefore, affected by an issue in the Network Security Services (NSS) libraries. This issue is due to lenient parsing of ASN.1 values involved in a signature and could lead to the forgery of RSA signatures, such as SSL certificates.

Solution

Upgrade to Google Chrome 37.0.2062.124 or later.
