Google Chrome < 58.0.3029.96 WebRTC Frame Order Handling Race Condition (macOS)

High Nessus Plugin ID 99996


A web browser installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is affected by an unspecified race condition.


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is prior to 58.0.3029.96. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified race condition in the WebRTC component in that is triggered during the handling of frame orders. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to have an unspecified impact.

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


Upgrade to Google Chrome version 58.0.3029.96 or later.
