Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a browser plugin that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing KB3049508. It is, therefore,
affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple double-free errors exist that allow an attacker
to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0346,
CVE-2015-0359)

- Multiple memory corruption flaws exist due to improper
validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can
exploit these flaws, via specially crafted flash
content, to corrupt memory and execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-0347, CVE-2015-0350, CVE-2015-0352,

CVE-2015-3042, CVE-2015-3043)

- A unspecified buffer overflow condition exists due to
improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote
attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-0348)

- Multiple unspecified use-after-free errors exist that
allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-0349, CVE-2015-0351, CVE-2015-0358,
CVE-2015-3039)

- An unspecified type confusion flaw exists that allows
an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0356)

- Multiple unspecified memory leaks exist that allows an
attacker to bypass the Address Space Layout
Randomization (ASLR) feature. (CVE-2015-0357,
