Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host has a version of Adobe AIR installed that is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of Adobe AIR on the remote
Mac OS X host is equal or prior to 17.0.0.144. It is, therefore,
affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified security bypass vulnerability exists that
allows an attacker to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2015-3044)

- Multiple unspecified type confusion flaws exist that
allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-3077, CVE-2015-3084, CVE-2015-3086)

- 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-2015-3078, CVE-2015-3089, CVE-2015-3090,
CVE-2015-3093)

- An unspecified security bypass exists that allows a
context-dependent attacker to disclose sensitive
information. (CVE-2015-3079)

- An unspecified use-after-free error exists that allows
an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3080)

- An unspecified time-of-check time-of-use (TOCTOU) race
condition exists that allows an attacker to bypass
Protected Mode for Internet Explorer. (CVE-2015-3081)

- Multiple validation bypass vulnerabilities exist that
allow an attacker to read and write arbitrary data to
the file system. (CVE-2015-3082, CVE-2015-3083,
CVE-2015-3085)

- An integer overflow condition exists due to improper
validation of user-supplied input. This allows a
context-dependent attacker to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-3087)

- A heap-based buffer overflow exists due to improper
validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can
exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3088)

- Multiple unspecified memory leaks exist that allow an
attacker to bypass the Address Space Layout
Randomization (ASLR) feature. (CVE-2015-3091,
CVE-2015-3092)
