Flash Player For Mac <= 16.0.0.296 Unspecified Code Execution (APSA15-02 / APSB15-04)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 81128

Synopsis

The remote Mac OS X host has a browser plugin that is affected by multiple code execution vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its version, the Adobe Flash Player installed on the remote Mac OS X host is equal or prior to 16.0.0.296. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Several use-after-free errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0313, CVE-2015-0315, CVE-2015-0320, CVE-2015-0322)

- Several memory corruption errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0314, CVE-2015-0316, CVE-2015-0318, CVE-2015-0321, CVE-2015-0329, CVE-2015-0330)

- Several type confusion errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0317, CVE-2015-0319)

- Several heap-based buffer-overflow errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0323, CVE-2015-0327)

- A buffer overflow error exists that allows arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0324)

- Several null pointer dereference errors exist that have unspecified impacts. (CVE-2015-0325, CVE-2015-0326, CVE-2015-0328).

- A user-after-free error exists within the processing of invalid m3u8 playlists. A remote attacker, with a specially crafted m3u8 playlist file, can force a dangling pointer to be reused after it has been freed, allowing the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-0331)

Solution

Upgrade to Adobe Flash Player version 16.0.0.305 or later.

Alternatively, Adobe has made version 13.0.0.269 available for those installations that cannot be upgraded to 16.x.
