New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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 host is prior to 49.0.2623.108, and is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified off-by-one flaw exists in the 'CharacterRange::Negate()' function that may allow a context-dependent attacker to have an unspecified impact. No further details have been provided.
- An unspecified flaw exists in the 'ArrayConcatVisitor' class in 'builtins.cc' that is triggered as array subclass concats are not properly checked. This may allow an attacker to have an unspecified impact.
- A use-after-free error exists in 'Navigation' that may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. No further details have been provided.
- A use-after-free error exists in 'Extensions' that may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. No further details have been provided.
- An overflow condition exists in the 'Program::getUniformInternal()' function in 'libANGLE/Program.cpp' that is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a buffer overflow and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An unspecified flaw exists in the 'pageCapture' extension function's implementation that may allow a context-dependent attacker to have an unspecified impact. No further details have been provided.

Solution

Update the Chrome browser to 49.0.2623.108 or later.
