SynopsisA web browser installed on the remote Windows host is affected by a use after free vulnerability
DescriptionThe version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 71.0.3578.98. It is, therefore, affected by a use after free vulnerability in pdfium. This could allow a remote attacker to potentially exploit heap corruption via a crafted pdf file as noted in Google Chrome stable channel update release notes for 2018/12/12.
Please refer to the release notes for additional information.
Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Google Chrome version 71.0.3578.98 or later.
