New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote host is running an outdated version of Adobe AIR.

Description

Versions of Adobe AIR prior to 17.0.0.172 are outdated and thus unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple double-free errors exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0346, CVE-2015-0359)
- 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-2015-0347, CVE-2015-0350, CVE-2015-0352, CVE-2015-0353, CVE-2015-0354, CVE-2015-0355, CVE-2015-0360, CVE-2015-3038, CVE-2015-3041, CVE-2015-3042, CVE-2015-3043)
- A unspecified buffer overflow condition exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0348)
- Multiple unspecified use-after-free errors exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0349, CVE-2015-0351, CVE-2015-0358, CVE-2015-3039)
- An unspecified type confusion flaw exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0356)
- Multiple unspecified memory leaks exist that allows an attacker to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) feature. (CVE-2015-0357, CVE-2015-3040)
- An unspecified security bypass flaw exists that allows an attacker to disclose information. (CVE-2015-3044)
