Adobe Premiere Elements Multiple Vulnerabilities (ASPB21-78)

high Nessus Plugin ID 154230
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.


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


The version of the Adobe Premiere Elements installed on the remote host is prior to 2021 build 19 (20210809.daily.2242976). It is, therefore, affected by multiple arbitrary code execution vulnerabilities due to the access of memory locations after the end of buffers. An unauthenticated, attacker could exploit these to execute arbitrary code on an affected system.

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


Upgrade Adobe Premier Elements to build 19.0 (20210809.daily.2242976)
