high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6920


The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


Versions prior to Google Chrome 28.0.1500.71 are potentially affected by the multiple vulnerabilities, the more serious of which are as follows:

- Several remote code execution vulnerabilities exist due to use-after-free errors in multiple areas. A remote attacker can leverage this to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. (CVE-2013-2870, CVE-2013-2871, CVE-2013-2873, CVE-2013-2879)

- Memory corruption vulnerabilities exist which may be exploitable to induce arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-2869, CVE-2013-2878, CVE-2013-2875)

- Information disclosure vulnerabilities exist that may be exploited by remote attackers to obtain information that can aid in further attacks. (CVE-2013-2853, CVE-2013-2874)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to confusion in extensions permissions, which a remote attacker could exploit to bypass intended security restrictions to perform unauthorized actions. (CVE-2013-2876)


Upgrade to Google Chrome 28.0.1500.71 or later.
