The remote Windows host contains a browser plugin that is affected by
a pointer overwrite vulnerability.
The remote Windows host contains a version of Adobe's Shockwave Player
that is earlier than 22.214.171.1240. Such versions are reportedly affected
by a vulnerability that can be triggered using a specially crafted
Adobe Director File to overwrite a 4-byte memory location during a
memory dereference. If an attacker can trick a user of the affected
software into opening such a file, he can leverage this issue to
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of that user.
