high Nessus Plugin ID 153439
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


Adobe Premiere Pro installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Adobe Premiere Pro installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 15.4.1. It is, therefore, affected by memory access vulnerabilities that could lead to arbitrary code execution.

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


Upgrade to Adobe Premiere Pro version 15.4.1 or later.
