Synopsis

The remote macOS or Mac OSX host has a browser plugin installed that is affected by arbitrary code execution vulnerability

Description

The version of Adobe Flash Player installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is equal or prior to version 32.0.0.433. It is therefore affected by a NULL pointer dereference flaw. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by inserting malicious strings in an HTTP response, to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user.

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

Solution

Upgrade to Adobe Flash Player version 32.0.0.445 or later.
