Google Chrome for Android < 50.0.2661.75 Directory Traversal

low Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9374
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.


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.
