Google Chrome < 43.0.2357.134 RCE Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 84733

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 43.0.2357.134. It is, therefore, affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities in the bundled version of Adobe Flash :

- A use-after-free error exists in the opaqueBackground class in the ActionScript 3 (AS3) implementation. A remote attacker, via specially crafted Flash content, can dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-5122)

- A use-after-free error exists in the BitmapData class in the ActionScript 3 (AS3) implementation. A remote attacker, via specially crafted Flash content, can dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-5123)

Solution

Upgrade to Google Chrome 43.0.2357.134 or later.
