Google Chrome Multiple Vulnerabilities - 02 - May15 (Linux)

Published: 2015-05-27 04:12:43
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

Detection Type:
Windows Registry

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 are due to: - Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Google V8. - Use-after-free vulnerability in the SpeechRecognitionClient implementation in the Speech subsystem. - common/ script in Google Chrome does not properly handle wraps. - Vulnerability in core/html/parser/HTMLConstructionSite.cpp in the DOM implementation in Blink, as used in Google Chrome. - Vulnerability in core/dom/Document.cpp in Blink, as used in Google Chrome which allows the inheritance of the designMode attribute. - Use-after-free vulnerability in content/renderer/media/ script in the WebAudio implementation. - Use-after-free vulnerability in the SVG implementation in Blink. - platform/graphics/filters/FEColorMatrix.cpp script in the SVG implementation in Blink. - Google Chrome relies on libvpx code that was not built with an appropriate size-limit value. - PDFium, as used in Google Chrome, does not properly initialize memory. - Multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities in content/renderer/media/ script in the WebRTC implementation. - Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Google Chrome. - The Spellcheck API implementation in Google Chrome before does not use an HTTPS session for downloading a Hunspell dictionary. - platform/fonts/shaping/HarfBuzzShaper.cpp script in Blink, does not initialize a certain width field.

Successful exploitation will allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service, inject arbitrary web script, spoof the URL bar or deliver misleading popup content, bypass the Same Origin Policy and a sandbox protection mechanism, execute arbitrary code and allow man-in-the-middle attackers to deliver incorrect spelling suggestions or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted dimensions.

Affected Versions:
Google Chrome version prior to 43.0.2357.65 on Linux.

Upgrade to Google Chrome version 43.0.2357.65 or later.

Solution 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".
