High

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 40.0.2214.111. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A use-after-free error exists related to the DOM component. (CVE-2015-1209)

- A cross-origin bypass error exists related to the V8 JavaScript engine bindings. (CVE-2015-1210)

- A privilege escalation error exists related to service workers. (CVE-2015-1211)

- Various unspecified errors exist. (CVE-2015-1212)

Numerous vulnerabilities affect the Adobe Flash Player plugin which is bundled with this version of Chrome :

- Several use-after-free errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0313, CVE-2015-0315, CVE-2015-0320, CVE-2015-0322)

- Several memory corruption errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0314, CVE-2015-0316, CVE-2015-0318, CVE-2015-0321, CVE-2015-0329, CVE-2015-0330)

- Type confusion errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0317, CVE-2015-0319)
