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.

Synopsis

The remote host is running an outdated version of Adobe Flash Player for Internet Explorer that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

Versions of Adobe Flash player prior to 13.0.0.289 / 17.0.0.188 are outdated and thus unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified security bypass flaw exists that allows an attacker to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2015-3044)
- Multiple unspecified type confusion flaws exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3077, CVE-2015-3084, CVE-2015-3086)
- Multiple memory corruption flaws exist due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit these flaws, via specially crafted flash content, to corrupt memory and execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3078, CVE-2015-3089, CVE-2015-3090, CVE-2015-3093)
- An unspecified security bypass exists that allows a context-dependent attacker to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2015-3079)
- An unspecified use-after-free error exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3080)
- An unspecified time-of-check time-of-use (TOCTOU) race condition exists that allows an attacker to bypass Protected Mode for Internet Explorer. (CVE-2015-3081)
- Multiple validation bypass vulnerabilities exist that allow an attacker to read or write arbitrary data to the file system. (CVE-2015-3082, CVE-2015-3083, CVE-2015-3085)
- An integer overflow condition exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input. This allows a context-dependent attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3087)
- A heap-based buffer overflow condition exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3088)
- Multiple unspecified memory leaks exist that allow an attacker to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) feature. (CVE-2015-3091, CVE-2015-3092)

Solution

Upgrade to Adobe Flash Player version 17.0.0.188 or later. If 17.x cannot be obtained, 13.0.0.289 has also been patched for these vulnerabilities.
