Description

According to its version, the instance of Flash Player installed on the remote Windows host is 10.3.181.36 or earlier. As such, it is reportedly affected by several critical vulnerabilities :

- Multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities could lead to code execution. (CVE-2011-2130, CVE-2011-2134, CVE-2011-2137, CVE-2011-2414, CVE-2011-2415)

- Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities could lead to code execution. (CVE-2011-2135, CVE-2011-2140, CVE-2011-2417, CVE-2011-2424, CVE-2011-2425)

- A cross-site information disclosure vulnerability exists that could lead to code execution. (CVE-2011-2139)

By tricking a user on the affected system into opening a specially crafted document with Flash content, an attacker could leverage these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code remotely on the system subject to the user's privileges.

Solution

Upgrade to Adobe Flash version 10.3.183.5 or later.
