Synopsis

The remote Windows host has a browser plugin that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host is missing KB3049508. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple double-free errors exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0346, CVE-2015-0359)

- Multiple memory corruption flaws exist due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit these flaws, via specially crafted flash content, to corrupt memory and execute arbitrary code.

- A unspecified buffer overflow condition exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-0348)

(CVE-2015-0349, CVE-2015-0351, CVE-2015-0358, CVE-2015-3039)

- An unspecified type confusion flaw exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0356)

- Multiple unspecified memory leaks exist that allows an attacker to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) feature. (CVE-2015-0357, CVE-2015-3040)
