Flash Media Server Multiple Flaws

Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4380


The remote host is vulnerable to several remote overflows.


The remote host is running Adobe Flash Media Server.

This version of Flash Media Server is vulnerable to several flaws. There is a flaw in the way that the server handles RTMP messages. A specific and malformed request can cause the server to access memory that has already been de-allocated. Another flaw with the RTMP processing would allow an attacker to allocate a large buffer that would lead to a corruption of heap memory.


Upgrade to version 2.0.5 or higher.
