google -- chrome
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the Runtime_SetPrototype function in runtime.cc in Google V8, as used in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116, allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via unspecified vectors, aka "Universal XSS (UXSS)."
google -- chrome
Google V8, as used in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116, does not properly use numeric casts during handling of typed arrays, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted JavaScript code.
google -- chrome
Integer overflow in the SoftwareFrameManager::SwapToNewFrame function in content/browser/renderer_host/software_frame_manager.cc in the software compositor in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors that trigger an attempted mapping of a large amount of renderer memory.
google -- chrome
Use-after-free vulnerability in the WebSharedWorkerStub::OnTerminateWorkerContext function in content/worker/websharedworker_stub.cc in the Web Workers implementation in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors that trigger a SharedWorker termination during script loading.
google -- chrome
Use-after-free vulnerability in the HTMLBodyElement::insertedInto function in core/html/HTMLBodyElement.cpp in Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors involving attributes.
google -- chrome
Google V8, as used in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116, does not properly implement lazy deoptimization, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted JavaScript code, as demonstrated by improper handling of a heap allocation of a number outside the Small Integer (aka smi) range.
google -- chrome
Use-after-free vulnerability in the RenderBlock::addChildIgnoringAnonymousColumnBlocks function in core/rendering/RenderBlock.cpp in Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors involving addition of a child node.
google -- chrome
The UnescapeURLWithOffsetsImpl function in net/base/escape.cc in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116 does not properly handle bidirectional Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs), which makes it easier for remote attackers to spoof URLs via crafted use of right-to-left (RTL) Unicode text.
google -- chrome
Use-after-free vulnerability in Free(b)soft Laboratory Speech Dispatcher 0.7.1, as used in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application hang) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a text-to-speech request.
google -- chrome
Use-after-free vulnerability in content/renderer/renderer_webcolorchooser_impl.h in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors related to forms.
google -- chrome
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116 allow attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have other impact via unknown vectors.
google -- chrome
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Google V8 before 3.24.35.22, as used in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116, allow attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have other impact via unknown vectors.
