Google Chrome for Android < 50.0.2661.75 Directory Traversal

low Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9374


The remote mobile host is affected by a directory traversal vulnerability.


The version of Google Chrome for Android on the remote mobile host is prior to 50.0.2661.75 and thus is unpatched for a flaw that is triggered as the names of downloaded files from the content disposition are not properly sanitized. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to bypass file path restrictions.


Update Chrome for Android to version 50.0.2661.75 or later.
