New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote host has a browser plugin that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

Versions of Flash player earlier than 14.0.0.176 are unpatched for vulnerabilities related to the flash-plugin's processing of certain SWF content. An attacker could use these flaws to create a specially crafted SWF file that would cause flash-plugin to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code when the SWF content is loaded. (CVE-2014-0538, CVE-2014-0540, CVE-2014-0541, CVE-2014-0542, CVE-2014-0543, CVE-2014-0544, CVE-2014-0545)
