Description

According to its version, the instance of Adobe AIR installed on the remote Windows host is 3.0 or earlier and is reportedly affected by several critical vulnerabilities :

- Several unspecified memory corruption errors exist that could lead to code execution.
(CVE-2011-2445, CVE-2011-2451, CVE-2011-2452, CVE-2011-2453, CVE-2011-2454, CVE-2011-2455, CVE-2011-2459, CVE-2011-2460)
