Google Chrome < 43.0.2357.130 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 84343

Synopsis

The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Mac OS X 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.
