Description

extensions/renderer/gc_callback.cc in Google Chrome before 50.0.2661.94 does not prevent fallback execution once the Garbage Collection callback has started, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
