Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop < 22.214.171.1242 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB16-21)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 91780
SynopsisAn application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 126.96.36.1992. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- An untrusted search path vulnerability exists in the installer due to looking for specific files or libraries in the current working directory which may not be trusted or under user control. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted library (DLL) file, to inject and execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-4157)
- An unquoted search path vulnerability exists in AdobeUpdateService.exe that allows a local attacker to inject and execute arbitrary code via an executable in the %SYSTEMDRIVE% directory. (CVE-2016-4158)
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop version 188.8.131.522 or later.
