Flash Player < / Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 20158


The remote host contains an application that is affected by remote code execution flaws.


According to its version number, the instance of Macromedia's Flash Player on the remote host fails to validate the frame type identifier from SWF files before using that as an index into an array of function pointers. An attacker may be able to leverage this issue using a specially crafted SWF file to execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the permissions of the user running Flash Player.


Upgrade to Flash Player version / or later.
