Description

Google Chrome before 53.0.2785.113 does not ensure that the recipient of a certain IPC message is a valid RenderFrame or RenderWidget, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging access to a renderer process, related to render_frame_host_impl.cc and render_widget_host_impl.cc, as demonstrated by a Password Manager message.

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.
