Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Google Chrome 2.x and 3.x before 188.8.131.52 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a (1) RSS or (2) Atom feed, related to the rendering of the application/rss+xml content type as XML "active content."
CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
Impact Subscore: 2.9
Exploitability Subscore: 8.6
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable; Victim must voluntarily interact with attack mechanism
Access Complexity: Medium
Authentication: Not required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows unauthorized modification
Chrome: Upgrade to latest version of Google Chrome (v184.108.40.206 or higher).
If you remain connected to the internet, this should be automatic.
Opera: Wait for upcoming patch for Scenario (3) in next minor release
(non-alpha/beta) of Opera 10 [Opera 9 users need to upgrade]. However, you
will still continue to be vulnerable to script execution.
