Adobe AIR < Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB14-02)

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8106


The remote host is running an outdated version of Adobe AIR.


Versions of Adobe AIR earlier than are unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists when requesting sites using 'jar:' URIs that enables a context-dependent attacker to bypass 'AllowScriptAccess=never' security protection mechanisms. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (CVE-2014-0491)
- A flaw exists in the ActionScript Virtual Machine. The issue is due to the AVM not properly sanitizing values before jumping to them. An attacker can use this issue to leak addresses from 'Flash.ocx' within the current process, making exploitation of issues considerably easier. (CVE-2014-0492)


Upgrade to Adobe AIR or later.
