Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop < 22.214.171.1240 Unquoted Search Path Local Privilege Escalation (APSB16-34)
High Nessus Plugin ID 94055
SynopsisAn application installed on the remote host is affected by privilege escalation vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 126.96.36.1990. It is, therefore, affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability due to an unquoted search path. A local attacker can exploit this, via a malicious executable in the root path, to elevate privileges.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop version 188.8.131.520 or later.
