Adobe Flash Player for Mac <= 27.0.0.159 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB17-32)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103923

Synopsis

The remote macOS or Mac OS X host has a browser plugin installed that is affected by a type confusion vulnerability.

Description

The version of Adobe Flash Player installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is equal or prior to version 27.0.0.159. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified type confusion flaw that is caused by input not being properly validated. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a website containing specially crafted Flash content, to trigger the vulnerability and potentially execute arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade to Adobe Flash Player version 27.0.0.170 or later.
