Google Chrome < 44.0.2403.89 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8853

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 44.0.2403.89 and is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An uninitialized memory read flaw exists in ICU that an attacker can exploit to have unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-1270)
- A heap buffer overflow condition exists in PDFium due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-1271, CVE-2015-1273)
- A use-after-free memory error exists when the GPU process is unexpectedly terminated. An attacker can exploit this to have an unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-1272)
- The settings for automatic downloading of files allows EXE files to be auto-opened, which can result in the execution of malicious code. (CVE-2015-1274)
- A universal cross-site scripting (UXSS) vulnerability exists in Google Chrome for Android due to improper validation of 'intent://' URLs. An attacker, using a specially crafted request, can exploit this to execute arbitrary script code. (CVE-2015-1275)
- A use-after-free memory error exists in IndexedDB that can allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1276)
- A denial of service vulnerability exists due to a use-after-free memory error in the method 'ui::AXTree::Unserialize'. An attacker can exploit this to cause a crash. (CVE-2015-1277)
- An unspecified flaw exists when handling PDF files that allows an attacker to spoof URLs. (CVE-2015-1278)
- An integer overflow condition exists in the method 'CJBig2_Image::expand()' in file JBig2_Image.cpp due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1279)
- A flaw exists in Google Skia due to improper validation of user-supplied input, which an attacker can exploit to corrupt memory or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1280)
- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an attacker to bypass the Content Security Policy. (CVE-2015-1281)
- A use-after-free memory error exists in PDFium in the file javascript/Document.cpp. An attacker, using a crafted file, can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1282)
- A heap buffer overflow condition exists in 'expat'. No other information is available. (CVE-2015-1283)
- A use-after-free memory error exists in Blink that can allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1284)
- An unspecified flaw exists in the XSS auditor that allows an attacker to gain access to sensitive information. (CVE-2015-1285)
- A universal cross-site scripting (UXSS) vulnerability exists in Blink due to improper validation of unspecified input. An attacker, using a crafted request, can exploit this to execute arbitrary script code. (CVE-2015-1286)
- A flaw exists in WebKit related to the handling of the quirks-mode exception for CSS MIME types, which allows an attacker to bypass the cross-origin policy. (CVE-2015-1287)
- A flaw exists in file 'spellcheck_hunspell_dictionary.cc', related to the downloading of spellchecker dictionaries over HTTP, which allows a man-in-the-middle to corrupt the downloaded dictionaries. (CVE-2015-1288)
- Multiple vulnerabilities exist that were disclosed by internal auditing, fuzzing, and other initiatives, which can result in a denial of service, execution of arbitrary code, or other moderate to severe impact. (CVE-2015-1289)
- The regular-expression engine in Google V8 is affected by a denial of service vulnerability. Remote attackers using specially crafted JavaScript code could cause an application crash. (CVE-2015-5605)

Solution

Update the Chrome browser to 44.0.2403.89, or later.
