Flash Player < (inferred) Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB15-01 through 05)

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8655
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 a browser plugin that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


Versions of Adobe Flash player equal or prior to are outdated and thus unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities exist due to improper input validation. A remote attacker could exploit these to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0332, CVE-2015-0333, CVE-2015-0335, CVE-2015-0339).
- Multiple type confusion flaws exist, which an attacker could exploit to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0334, CVE-2015-0336).
- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an attacker to bypass cross-domain policy (CVE-2015-0337).
- An integer overflow vulnerability exists due to improper input validation, which an attacker can exploit to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0338).
- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an attacker to bypass restrictions and upload arbitrary files (CVE-2015-0340).
- Multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities exist that can allow an attacker to dereference memory which has already been freed and execute arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0341, CVE-2015-0342).
- An unspecified improper file validation issue (CVE-2015-0301).
- An unspecified information disclosure vulnerability, which can be exploited to capture keystrokes (CVE-2015-0302).
- Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0303, CVE-2015-0306).
- Multiple heap-based buffer overflow vulnerabilities that can be exploited to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0304, CVE-2015-0309).
- An unspecified type confusion vulnerability that can lead to code execution (CVE-2015-0305).
- An out-of-bounds read vulnerability that can be exploited to leak memory addresses (CVE-2015-0307).
- A use-after-free vulnerability that results in arbitrary code execution (CVE-2015-0308).
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to a flaw that can allow bypassing of memory randomization mitigations, aiding in further attacks (CVE-2015-0310).
- A use-after-free error exists that allows an attacker to crash the application or execute arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0311).
- A double-free error exists that allows an attacker to crash the application or possibly execute arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0312).
- Several use-after-free errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution (CVE-2015-0313, CVE-2015-0315, CVE-2015-0320, CVE-2015-0322).
- Several memory corruption errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution (CVE-2015-0314, CVE-2015-0316, CVE-2015-0318, CVE-2015-0321, CVE-2015-0329, CVE-2015-0330).
- Several type confusion errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution (CVE-2015-0317, CVE-2015-0319).
- Several heap-based buffer overflow errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution (CVE-2015-0323, CVE-2015-0327).
- A buffer overflow error exists that allows arbitrary code execution (CVE-2015-0324).
- Several NULL pointer dereference errors exist that have unspecified impacts (CVE-2015-0325, CVE-2015-0326, CVE-2015-0328).
- A use-after-free error exists within the processing of invalid m3u8 playlists. A remote attacker, with a specially crafted m3u8 playlist file, can force a dangling pointer to be reused after it has been freed, allowing the execution of arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0331).


Upgrade to Adobe Flash Player version or later. Alternatively, Adobe has made version available for those installs that cannot be upgraded to 17.x.
