Google Chrome < 61.0.3163.100 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700344


The remote host is utilizing a web browser that is affected by multiple attack vectors.


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is prior to 61.0.3163.100, and is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists that is triggered as the JIT escape analysis pass may optimize out the initialization of certain local variables. With specially crafted JavaScript, a context-dependent attacker can execute arbitrary code.
- An out-of-bounds access flaw exists in WASM that is triggered when handling table sizes. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An off-by-one out-of-bounds access flaw exists in the 'Typer::Visitor::JSCallTyper()' function in 'compiler/' that is triggered when handling range optimization for the 'String.indexOf()' and 'String.lastIndexOf()' JavaScript methods. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade to Chrome version 61.0.3163.100 or later.
