Google Chrome contains multiple vulnerabilities that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct spoofing attacks or session fixation attacks, execute arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service condition on a targeted system. Updates are available.
Multiple vulnerabilities in Google Chrome versions prior to 31.0.1650.63 for Windows, Linux, and Mac could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct spoofing attacks or session fixation attacks, execute arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service (DoS) condition on a targeted system.
The Google Chrome Stable Channel Release addresses the following vulnerabilities:
Session fixation in sync related to 302 redirects
Address bar spoofing related to modal dialogs
Use-after-free in editing
Buffer overflow in v8
Out of bounds read and write in v8
Various fixes from internal audits, fuzzing, and other initiatives
An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to view a malicious web page that contains crafted data. Successful exploitation could allow the attacker to spoof the address bar, conduct session hijacking, execute arbitrary code, or cause a DoS condition on the system.
To exploit the vulnerabilities, the attacker may provide a link that directs a user to a malicious site and use misleading language or instructions to persuade the user to follow the provided link.
