Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop < 3.7.0.272 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB16-21)

Synopsis :

An application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop installed on the remote
Windows host is prior to 3.7.0.272. It is, therefore, affected by
multiple vulnerabilities :

- An untrusted search path vulnerability exists in the
installer due to looking for specific files or libraries
in the current working directory which may not be
trusted or under user control. A local attacker can
exploit this, via a specially crafted library (DLL)
file, to inject and execute arbitrary code in the
context of the current user. (CVE-2016-4157)

- An unquoted search path vulnerability exists in
AdobeUpdateService.exe that allows a local attacker to
inject and execute arbitrary code via an executable in
the %SYSTEMDRIVE% directory. (CVE-2016-4158)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
