New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote host has an application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Adobe After Effects installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 18.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including the following:

- An OS command injection vulnerability exists in Adobe After Effects. An attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code on an affected system. (CVE-2021-28571)

- An out-of-bounds write error exists in Adobe After Effects. An attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code on an affected system. (CVE-2021-28586)

- An out-of-bounds read error exists in Adobe After Effects. An attacker can exploit this to read arbitrary files on the file system. (CVE-2021-28587)

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 After Effects version 18.2 or later.
