Adobe Flash Player <= 17.0.0.169 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB15-09) (Mac OS X)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 83367

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Adobe Flash Player installed on the remote Mac OS X host is equal or prior to version 17.0.0.169. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified security bypass vulnerability exists that allows an attacker to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2015-3044)

- Multiple unspecified type confusion flaws exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-3077, CVE-2015-3084, CVE-2015-3086)

- 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.
(CVE-2015-3078, CVE-2015-3089, CVE-2015-3090, CVE-2015-3093)

- An unspecified security bypass exists that allows a context-dependent attacker to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2015-3079)

- An unspecified use-after-free error exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3080)

- An unspecified time-of-check time-of-use (TOCTOU) race condition exists that allows an attacker to bypass Protected Mode for Internet Explorer. (CVE-2015-3081)

- Multiple validation bypass vulnerabilities exist that allow an attacker to read and write arbitrary data to the file system. (CVE-2015-3082, CVE-2015-3083, CVE-2015-3085)

- An integer overflow condition exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input. This allows a context-dependent attacker to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-3087)

- A heap-based buffer overflow exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3088)

- Multiple unspecified memory leaks exist that allow an attacker to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) feature. (CVE-2015-3091, CVE-2015-3092)

Solution

Upgrade to Adobe Flash Player version 17.0.0.188 or later.

Alternatively, Adobe has made version 13.0.0.289 available for those installations that cannot be upgraded to 17.x.
