Google Chrome < 37.0.2062.120 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8374


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 37.0.2062.120 and is thus missing fixes for several vulnerabilities, one of which is a use-after-free error in the Blink rendering engine, which could be leveraged for remote code execution. Fixes for miscellaneous other vulnerabilities also exist in this latest version, and the integrated Flash engine has been updated to the concurrent version as well.


Update the Chrome browser to 37.0.2062.120 or later.
