Google Chrome < 49.0.2623.75 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 89686

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 49.0.2623.75. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple overflow conditions exist in the libpng library in the png_set_PLTE() and png_get_PLTE() functions due to improper handling of bit depths less than eight. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted PNG image, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-8126)

- An unspecified flaw exists in Blink that allows an attacker to bypass the same-origin policy.
(CVE-2016-1630)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Pepper plugin that allows an attacker to bypass the same-origin policy.
(CVE-2016-1631)

- A bad cast flaw exists in the Extensions component that allows an attacker to have an unspecified impact.
(CVE-2016-1632)

- Multiple use-after-free errors exist in Blink. A remote attacker can exploit these issues to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1633, CVE-2016-1634, CVE-2016-1635)

- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an attacker to bypass SRI validation. (CVE-2016-1636)

- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an attacker to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-1637)

- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an attacker to bypass the webAPI. (CVE-2016-1638)

- A use-after-free error exists in WebRTC. A remote attacker can exploit this issue to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1639)

- An unspecified origin confusion flaw exists in the Extensions UI that allows an attacker to have an unspecified impact. (CVE-2016-1640)

- A use-after-free error exists in Favicon. A remote attacker can exploit this issue to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1641)

- Multiple flaws exist that allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1642)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in Google V8 in runetime-scopes.cc that allows an attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2843)
