Google Chrome < 36.0.1985.143 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8356


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


The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is a version prior to 36.0.1985.143 and is thus missing fixes for the following vulnerabilities:

- A use-after-free in the web socket implementation of Blink, which may be leveraged to execute arbitrary code (CVE_2014-3165)

- A flaw in the Public Key Pinning (PKP) implementation that may be leveraged to disclose sensitive information (CVE-2014-3166)

Other unspecified security flaws exist that have since been patched by this version.


Update the Chrome browser to 36.0.1985.143 or later.
