Published: 2010-10-01 06:36:34
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Detection Type:
Executable

Impact:
Successful exploitation will allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service, cross-site-scripting and execution of arbitrary code.

Affected Versions:
Google Chrome version prior to 5.0.375.70 on Linux

Technical Details:
The flaws are due to: - Error in 'toAlphabetic' function in 'rendering/RenderListMarker.cpp' in WebCore in WebKit. - Error in 'page/Geolocation.cpp' which does stop timers associated with geolocation upon deletion of a document. - Memory corruption in 'font' handling. - Error in 'editing/markup.cpp' which fails to validate input passed to 'innerHTML' property of textarea. - Error in 'third_party/WebKit/WebCore/dom/Element.cpp' in 'Element::normalizeAttributes()' resulting in DOM mutation events being fired. - 'Clipboard::DispatchObject' function which does not properly handle 'CBF_SMBITMAP objects' in a 'ViewHostMsg_ClipboardWriteObjectsAsync' message which lead to illegal memory accesses and arbitrary execution related to 'Type Confusion' issue. - Error in 'rendering/FixedTableLayout.cpp' which leads to denial of service - 'Cross-origin bypass' in DOM methods. - Error in 'page/EventHandler.cpp' causes Cross-origin keystroke redirection.

Recommendations:
Upgrade to Google Chrome version 5.0.375.70 or later.

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".
