Google Chrome < 66.0.3359.170 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700357

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is prior to 66.0.3359.170, and is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the 'GlobalHandles::MakeWeak()' function in 'managed.h' that is triggered when handling managed objects. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to have an unspecified impact.
- An overflow condition exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service in a process linked against the library or potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade to Chrome version 66.0.3359.170 or later.
