MS KB3074219: Update for Vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player in Internet Explorer

critical Nessus Plugin ID 84367

Synopsis

The remote Windows host has a browser plugin installed that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.

Description

The remote Windows host is missing KB3074219. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to improper validation of unspecified user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted Flash content, to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.

Solution

Install Microsoft KB3074219.
