Google Chrome < 28.0.1500.71 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6920
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.


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.
