MS16-050: Security Update for Adobe Flash Player (3154132)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 90443
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Windows host is missing KB3154132. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) bypass vulnerability exists that allows an attacker to predict memory offsets in the call stack. (CVE-2016-1006)

- Multiple use-after-free errors exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1011, CVE-2016-1013, CVE-2016-1016, CVE-2016-1017, CVE-2016-1031)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1012, CVE-2016-1020, CVE-2016-1021, CVE-2016-1022, CVE-2016-1023, CVE-2016-1024, CVE-2016-1025, CVE-2016-1026, CVE-2016-1027, CVE-2016-1028, CVE-2016-1029, CVE-2016-1032, CVE-2016-1033)

- A directory search path vulnerability exists that allows an attacker to disclose sensitive resources.
(CVE-2016-1014)

- Multiple type confusion errors exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1015, CVE-2016-1019)

- An overflow condition exists that is triggered when handling JPEG-XR compressed image content. An attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2016-1018)

- An unspecified security bypass vulnerability exists.
(CVE-2016-1030)

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2012, 8.1, RT 8.1, 2012 R2, and 10. Alternatively, apply the workarounds as referenced in the Microsoft advisory.
