New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 45.0.2454.101. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the DOM that allows a remote attacker to bypass the cross-origin policy.

- A flaw exists in the V8 JavaScript engine when handling Object.observe calls on access-checked objects. A remote attacker may exploit this to bypass the cross-origin policy. (CVE-2015-1304)


Upgrade to Google Chrome 45.0.2454.101 or later.
