Adobe AIR < Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB14-17)

critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8327
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is running an outdated version of Adobe AIR.


Versions of Adobe AIR earlier than are affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists as data from JSONP callback APIs is insufficiently validated. With specially crafted SWF file content passed as a JSONP callback and then reflected by a vulnerable JSONP endpoint on a site, a context-dependent attacker can perform a Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF / XSRF) attack, causing the victim to perform various actions supported by the affected site. (CVE-2014-4671, CVE-2014-5333)
- Multiple unspecified errors exist that could allow unspecified security bypass attacks. (CVE-2014-0537, CVE-2014-0539)


Upgrade to Adobe AIR or later.
