Google Chrome < 62.0.3202.89 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700348


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 62.0.3202.89, and is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A use-after-free error exists in the 'InstanceBuilder::Build()' function in 'wasm/' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-15399)
- An overflow condition exists in the 'QuicClientPromisedInfo::OnPromiseHeaders()' function in 'net/quic/core/' that is triggered when handling method headers. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a stack-based buffer overflow, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-15398)


Upgrade to Chrome version 62.0.3202.89 or later.
