Flash Player < 24.0.0.186 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB16-39)

High

Synopsis

The remote host is running an outdated version of Adobe Flash Player that is affected by multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Adobe Flash Player prior to 24.0.0.186 are unpatched, and therefore affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An overflow condition exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a buffer overflow, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-7867, CVE-2016-7868, CVE-2016-7869, CVE-2016-7870) - A flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. No further details have been provided. (CVE-2016-7871, CVE-2016-7873, CVE-2016-7874, CVE-2016-7875, CVE-2016-7876) - An unspecified use-after-free error exists that may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. No further details have been provided. (CVE-2016-7872, CVE-2016-7877, CVE-2016-7878, CVE-2016-7879, CVE-2016-7880, CVE-2016-7881, CVE-2016-7892) - An unspecified flaw exists that may allow a context-dependent attacker to bypass security mechanisms. No further details have been provided. (CVE-2016-7890)

Solution

Upgrade to Adobe Flash Player version 24.0.0.186 or later.
