A security vulnerability that allows attackers to remotely execute malicious code via a GStreamer video player app-pull buffer is being addressed by Google.
Google has released an update to its Chrome Web Store to make it more secure by disabling the app-Pull Buffer feature in a browser extension.
The update is available today in Chrome OS and is also available in the Chrome Web store.
The security vulnerability affects all versions of Google Chrome up to version 47.0.1431.23.
To enable the feature, open a new tab or window in Chrome and click the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner.
Once opened, click the “Enable App-Pull Buffers” option to make changes.
The change should be visible to users who use a different version of Chrome.
The app- pull buffer allows attackers with physical access to the user’s computer to take control of the device.
The attacker can then download and execute malicious software via the device’s browser.
If the attacker has physical access, he can also access other devices by using an app-remote vulnerability.
The update is currently available in ChromeOS and is available in Google Chrome for Android users.
Google has previously released an open-source Chrome extension called Chrome Remote Desktop which allows users to remotely control an Android device.
It is also compatible with the Gstreamer Player app-push buffer feature.
The Chrome Remote app-streamer extension was created by security researcher Adam Grant and is designed to allow users to control the Chrome browser and the GStreamer Player on their Android devices.
It provides a means to remotely connect to the GPlayer and the Chrome remote device to perform actions on that device.
Users can also manage their device settings remotely through Chrome Remote.
