Vulnerability Details

Google Chrome Multiple Vulnerabilities Mar16 (Mac OS X)

Published: 2016-03-08 06:39:08
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

The host is installed with Google Chrome and is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
Multiple flaws exist as, - The Content Security Policy (CSP) implementation in Blink does not ignore a URL's path component in the case of a ServiceWorker fetch. - 'WebKit/Source/core/layout/LayoutBlock.cpp' script in Blink does not properly determine when anonymous block wrappers may exist. - Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities. - Use-after-free vulnerabilities. - The Web Store inline-installer implementation in the Extensions UI does not block installations upon deletion of an installation frame. - The 'SkATan2_255' function in 'effects/gradients/SkSweepGradient.cpp' script in Skia mishandles arctangent calculations. - Extensions subsystem does not properly validate the functions. - The 'PendingScript::notifyFinished' function in 'WebKit/Source/core/dom/PendingScript.cpp' script relies on memory-cache information about integrity-check occurrences instead of integrity-check successe. - 'extensions/renderer/' script does not properly consider object lifetimes and re-entrancy issues during OnDocumentElementCreated handling. - The 'PPB_Flash_MessageLoop_Impl::InternalRun' function in 'content/renderer/pepper/' script in the Pepper plugin mishandles nested message loops. - The 'ContainerNode::parserRemoveChild' function in 'WebKit/Source/core/dom/ContainerNode.cpp' script in Blink mishandles widget updates.

Successful exploitation would allow remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, to cause a denial of service, to bypass intended access restrictions, to bypass the Subresource Integrity (aka SRI) protection mechanism and to bypass the Same Origin Policy.

Affected Versions:
Google Chrome versions prior to 49.0.2623.75 on Mac OS X.

Upgrade to Google Chrome version 49.0.2623.75 or later.

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
