Google Chrome < 43.0.2357.130 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 84342

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 43.0.2357.130. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A scheme validation error exists in WebUI. A remote attacker can exploit this to have an unspecified impact.
(CVE-2015-1266)

- A cross-origin bypass vulnerability exists in Blink due to an unspecified flaw that is triggered when handling the creation context passed through public APIs. A remote attacker can exploit this to bypass the cross-origin policy. (CVE-2015-1267)

- A cross-origin bypass vulnerability exists in Blink due to an unspecified flaw in its V8 bindings. A remote attacker can exploit this to bypass the cross-origin policy. (CVE-2015-1268)

- A normalization bypass vulnerability exists in the HSTS/HPKP preload list. A remote attacker can exploit this to bypass HSTS/HPKP preloads and have a connection use HTTP instead of the expected HTTPS. (CVE-2015-1269)

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

Solution

Upgrade to Google Chrome 43.0.2357.130 or later.
