Google Chrome < 49.0.2623.108 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 90195

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 49.0.2623.108. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An out-of-bounds read error exists in Google V8 that allows an attacker to crash the application, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2016-1646)

- A use-after-free error exists in the Navigation component that allows an attacker to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1647)

- A use-after-free error exists in the Extensions component that allows an attacker to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1648)

- An overflow condition exists in libANGLE due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1649)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the pageCapture extension that allows an attacker to have an unspecified impact.
(CVE-2016-1650)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in PDFium due to improper handling of file names. An attacker can exploit this to crash the application, resulting in a denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade to Google Chrome version 49.0.2623.108 or later.
