Google Chrome < 55.0.2883.75 Multiple Vulnerabilities (macOS)

High Nessus Plugin ID 95481

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is prior to 55.0.2883.75. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A use-after-free error exists in PDFium in the Document::removeField() function within file fpdfsdk/javascript/Document.cpp when removing fields within a document. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2016-5203)

- A universal cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in Blink due to improper handling of the 'use' SVG element when calling event listeners on a cloned node. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. (CVE-2016-5204)

- A universal cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in Blink due to permitting frame swaps during frame detach. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. (CVE-2016-5205)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists in PDFium due to a flaw in the DocumentLoader::GetRequest() function within file pdf/document_loader.cc when handling redirects in the plugin. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass the same-origin policy. (CVE-2016-5206)

- A universal cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in Blink, specifically in the V8EventListener::getListenerFunction() function within file bindings/core/v8/V8EventListener.cpp, due to allowing the 'handleEvent' getter to run on forbidden scripts. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. (CVE-2016-5207)

- A universal cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in Blink due to improper handling of triggered events (e.g., closing a color chooser for an input element). An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. (CVE-2016-5208)

- An out-of-bounds write error exists in Blink due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5209)

- An out-of-bounds write error exists in PDFium in the CWeightTable::GetPixelWeightSize() function within file core/fxge/dib/fx_dib_engine.cpp. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to corrupt memory, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5210)

- An unspecified use-after-free error exists in PDFium due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to corrupt memory, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2016-5211)

- A unspecified flaw exists in the DevTools component due to improper validation of certain URLs that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose the content of arbitrary files. (CVE-2016-5212)

- Multiple use-after-free errors exist in the inspector component in V8 that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5213, CVE-2016-5219)

- A file download protection bypass vulnerability exists when downloading files that involve 'data:' URIs, unknown URI schemes, or overly long URLs. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a file to be downloaded without applying the mark-of-the-web. (CVE-2016-5214)

- A use-after-free error exists in WebAudio within file content/renderer/media/renderer_webaudiodevice_impl.cc due to improper handling of web audio. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5215)

- A use-after-free error exists in PDFium, specifically within file pdf/pdfium/pdfium_engine.cc, due to improper handling of non-visible page unloading. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5216)

- A flaw exists in PDFium due to the use of unvalidated data by the PDF helper extension. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to have an unspecified impact. No other details are available. (CVE-2016-5217)

- A flaw exists when handling chrome.tabs API navigations and displaying the pending URL. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to spoof the Omnibox address. (CVE-2016-5218)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in PDFium, due to improper handling of 'file: navigation', that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose local files. (CVE-2016-5220)

- An integer overflow condition exists in ANGLE due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to have an unspecified impact. (CVE-2016-5221)

- A flaw exists in the NavigatorImpl::NavigateToEntry() function within file frame_host/navigator_impl.cc due to improper handling of invalid URLs. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to spoof the Omnibox address. (CVE-2016-5222)

- An integer overflow condition exists in PDFium within file core/fpdfapi/page/cpdf_page.cpp that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to have an unspecified impact. No other details are available. (CVE-2016-5223)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists in the SVG component due to denorm handling not being disabled before calling Skia filter code. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass the same-origin policy. (CVE-2016-5224)

- A flaw exists in Blink, specifically in the HTMLFormElement::scheduleFormSubmission() function within file html/HTMLFormElement.cpp, due to improper enforcement of the form-action CSP (Content Security Policy). An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass intended access restrictions.
(CVE-2016-5225)

- A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in Blink within file ui/views/tabs/tab_strip.cc due to improper validation of input when dropping JavaScript URLs on a tab. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. (CVE-2016-5226)

- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose Content Security Policy (CSP) referrers. (CVE-2016-9650)

- An unspecified flaw exists in V8 within lookup.cc that allows unauthorized private property access. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-9651)

- Multiple other vulnerabilities exist, the most serious of which can be exploited by an authenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-9652)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
