I have exactly the same problem on Mac 10.12.6 Sierra
Java version 10.0.1
Selenium version 3.12.0
Chromedriver version 2.40
Chrome 67.0

But I've found a workaround at least as it seems...
In Protractor I've forced webdriver-manager to use selenium server version 2.53.1 and it seems that tests no longer fail on this error...

Would be great if this problem could be fixed for 3.x version too...

Work around for testing on Chrome:

Don't use selenium-standalone, but use instead.

It worked for me on Mac.

    "devDependencies": {
        "chromedriver": "^2.40.0",
        "wdio-chromedriver-service": "^0.1.3",
        "wdio-mocha-framework": "0.5.12",
        "webdriverio": "4.13.1"

Looks like this issue is mixing bits from different parts and projects, and it went stale.

It is not clear what the issue is, and after over two years it either got solved or is not relevant anymore. We are doing an issue clean up, so I will close this issue.
However, if the issue still exists, feel free to open a new one with all the information required in the template.
