Adobe Flash Player for Mac <= 126.96.36.199 Arbitrary Code Execution (APSB16-36)
High Nessus Plugin ID 94335
SynopsisThe remote macOS or Mac OS X host has a browser plugin installed that is affected by an arbitrary code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Adobe Flash Player installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is equal or prior to version 188.8.131.52. It is, therefore, affected by an arbitrary code execution vulnerability due to a use-after-free error. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a website containing specially crafted Flash content, to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
SolutionUpgrade to Adobe Flash Player version 184.108.40.206 or later.
