Adobe AIR < 17.0.0.172 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB15-09)

High

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The remote host is running an outdated version of Adobe AIR.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Versions of Adobe AIR prior to 17.0.0.172 are outdated and thus unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- 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 AIR 17.0.0.172 or later.
