Google Chrome < 44.0.2403.89 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 84922

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 44.0.2403.89. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An uninitialized memory read flaw exists in ICU that an attacker can exploit to have unspecified impact.
(CVE-2015-1270)

- A heap buffer overflow condition exists in PDFium due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-1271, CVE-2015-1273)

- A use-after-free memory error exists when the GPU process is unexpectedly terminated. An attacker can exploit this to have an unspecified impact.
(CVE-2015-1272)

- The settings for automatic downloading of files allows EXE files to be auto-opened, which can result in the execution of malicious code. (CVE-2015-1274)

- A universal cross-site scripting (UXSS) vulnerability exists in Google Chrome for Android due to improper validation of 'intent://' URLs. An attacker, using a specially crafted request, can exploit this to execute arbitrary script code. (CVE-2015-1275)

- A use-after-free memory error exists in IndexedDB that can allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-1276)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists due to a use-after-free memory error in the method ui::AXTree::Unserialize. An attacker can exploit this to cause a crash. (CVE-2015-1277)

- An unspecified flaw exists when handling PDF files that allows an attacker to spoof URLs. (CVE-2015-1278)

- An integer overflow condition exists in the method CJBig2_Image::expand() in file JBig2_Image.cpp due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1279)

- A flaw exists in Google Skia due to improper validation of user-supplied input, which an attacker can exploit to corrupt memory or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-1280)

- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an attacker to bypass the Content Security Policy. (CVE-2015-1281)

- A use-after-free memory error exists in PDFium in the file javascript/Document.cpp. An attacker, using a crafted file, can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1282)

- A heap buffer overflow condition exists in 'expat'.
No other information is available. (CVE-2015-1283)

- A use-after-free memory error exists in Blink that can allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-1284)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the XSS auditor that allows an attacker to gain access to sensitive information. (CVE-2015-1285)

- A universal cross-site scripting (UXSS) vulnerability exists in Blink due to improper validation of unspecified input. An attacker, using a crafted request, can exploit this to execute arbitrary script code.
(CVE-2015-1286)

- A flaw exists in WebKit related to the handling of the quirks-mode exception for CSS MIME types, which allows an attacker to bypass the cross-origin policy.
(CVE-2015-1287)

- A flaw exists in file spellcheck_hunspell_dictionary.cc, related to the downloading of spellchecker dictionaries over HTTP, which allows a man-in-the-middle to corrupt the downloaded dictionaries. (CVE-2015-1288)

- Multiple vulnerabilities exist that were disclosed by internal auditing, fuzzing, and other initiatives, which can result in a denial of service, execution of arbitrary code, or other moderate to severe impact.
(CVE-2015-1289)

Solution

Upgrade to Google Chrome 44.0.2403.89 or later.
