Google Chrome < 51.0.2704.103 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 91717


A web browser installed on the remote Mac OS X host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 51.0.2704.103. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the individualCharacterRanges() function in CachingWordShaper.cpp that is triggered when handling invalid glyph shaping results. A remote attacker can exploit this issue to corrupt memory, resulting in the execution of code. (VulnDB 140128)

- A use-after-free error exists in the OnChannelMessage() function in that allows a remote attacker to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (VulnDB 140129)

- An unspecified flaw exists in that allows a remote attacker to have an unspecified impact. (VulnDB 140130)


Upgrade to Google Chrome version 51.0.2704.103 or later.
