Google Chrome < 48.0.2564.116 Blink Same-Origin Policy Bypass

High Nessus Plugin ID 88956


The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 48.0.2564.116. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified flaw related to the Blink rendering engine. An attacker can exploit this to bypass same-origin policy restrictions and escape the sandbox, allowing the attacker to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
