high Nessus Plugin ID 90195
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.
