New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.7
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200708-01 (Macromedia Flash Player: Remote arbitrary code execution)
Mark Hills discovered some errors when interacting with a browser for keystrokes handling (CVE-2007-2022). Stefano Di Paola and Giorgio Fedon from Minded Security discovered a boundary error when processing FLV files (CVE-2007-3456). An input validation error when processing HTTP referrers has also been reported (CVE-2007-3457).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the Macromedia Flash Player, or sensitive data access.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Macromedia Flash Player users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-plugins/adobe-flash-126.96.36.199'
