Google Chrome < 62.0.3202.94 RCE

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700349


The remote host is utilizing a web browser that is affected by a Remote Code Execution (RCE) attack vector.


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is prior to 62.0.3202.94, and is affected by a type confusion flaw in the 'MaybeCallFunctionAtSymbol()' function in 'builtins/' that is triggered when handling fast path regular expressions for certain objects. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to crash a process linked against the library or potentially execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade to Chrome version 62.0.3202.94 or later.
