Google Chrome < 34.0.1847.137 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8251


The remote host is running an outdated web browser that contains multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is a version prior to 34.0.1847.137 and is thus missing fixes for the following vulnerabilities:

- Use-after-free error when handling WebSockets, and use-after-free error when calling the 'updateAppearance()' function in FrameSelection, which may be leveraged to access already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1740, CVE-2014-1742)

- An integer overflow condition in the 'deleteData()' and 'replaceData()' functions in CharacterData, which can be leveraged for denial of service or arbitrary code execution in the context of the application. (CVE-2014-1741)

- Various vulnerabilities in the built-in Flash player, which were fixed by updating to version


Update the Chrome browser to 34.0.1847.137 or later.
