The version of FreeBSD installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the 4281b712-ad6b-4c21-8f66-619a9150691f advisory.

  • Use after free in Extensions in Google Chrome prior to 117.0.5938.132 allowed an attacker who convinced a user to install a malicious extension to potentially exploit heap corruption via a crafted HTML page.
    (Chromium security severity: High) (CVE-2023-5187)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
