Google Chrome < 45.0.2454.85 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

high Nessus Plugin ID 85744

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 45.0.2454.85. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A cross-origin bypass vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the ContainerNode::parserRemoveChild() function in ContainerNode.cpp wherein user scripts may unexpectedly run in 'onunload' handlers during Document Object Model (DOM) modification. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted web page, to bypass cross-origin restrictions. (CVE-2015-1291)

- A cross-origin bypass vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the LocalDOMWindow::navigator() function in LocalDOMWindow.cpp wherein an incorrect navigator associated with a frame may be returned. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted web page, to bypass cross-origin restrictions.
(CVE-2015-1292)

- An unspecified cross-origin bypass vulnerability exists that allows a remote attacker, via a specially crafted web page, to bypass cross-origin restrictions.
(CVE-2015-1293)

- A use-after-free error exists in the SkMatrix::invertNonIdentity() function in SkMatrix.cpp.
A remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1294)

- A use-after-free error exists in print_web_view_helper.cc that is triggered when handling nested IPC handlers. A remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-1295)

- A spoofing vulnerability exists due to a flaw that is triggered when displaying a URL containing certain characters in an omnibox. A remote attacker can exploit this to include characters that may look like a padlock, spoofing a secure connection. (CVE-2015-1296)

- An unspecified flaw exists related to permission scoping as requests in an extension are not hidden from other extensions. (CVE-2015-1297)

- An unspecified URL handling issue exists as the URL to be opened after an extension is uninstalled is not restricted to HTTP and HTTPS. (CVE-2015-1298)

- A use-after-free error exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-1299)

- An unspecified information disclosure vulnerability exists in Blink. (CVE-2015-1300)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist that allow an attacker to have unspecified medium severity impact.
(CVE-2015-1301)

Solution

Upgrade to Google Chrome 45.0.2454.85 or later.
