Flash Player < 20.0.0.228 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB15-32)

High

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 20.0.0.228 are outdated and thus unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple heap buffer overflow conditions exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8438, CVE-2015-8446) - Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8045, CVE-2015-8047, CVE-2015-8060, CVE-2015-8408, CVE-2015-8416, CVE-2015-8417, CVE-2015-8418, CVE-2015-8419, CVE-2015-8443, CVE-2015-8444, CVE-2015-8451, CVE-2015-8455) - Multiple security bypass vulnerabilities exist that allow an attacker to write arbitrary data to the file system under user permissions. (CVE-2015-8453, CVE-2015-8440, CVE-2015-8409) - A stack buffer overflow condition exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8407, CVE-2015-8457) - A type confusion error exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8439, CVE-2015-8456) - An integer overflow condition exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8445) - A buffer overflow condition exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8415) - Multiple use-after-free errors exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8048, CVE-2015-8049, CVE-2015-8050, CVE-2015-8055, CVE-2015-8056, CVE-2015-8057, CVE-2015-8058, CVE-2015-8059, CVE-2015-8061, CVE-2015-8062, CVE-2015-8063, CVE-2015-8064, CVE-2015-8065, CVE-2015-8066, CVE-2015-8067, CVE-2015-8068, CVE-2015-8069, CVE-2015-8070, CVE-2015-8071, CVE-2015-8401, CVE-2015-8402, CVE-2015-8403, CVE-2015-8404, CVE-2015-8405, CVE-2015-8406, CVE-2015-8410, CVE-2015-8411, CVE-2015-8412, CVE-2015-8413, CVE-2015-8414, CVE-2015-8420, CVE-2015-8421, CVE-2015-8422, CVE-2015-8423, CVE-2015-8424, CVE-2015-8425, CVE-2015-8426, CVE-2015-8427, CVE-2015-8428, CVE-2015-8429, CVE-2015-8430, CVE-2015-8431, CVE-2015-8432, CVE-2015-8433, CVE-2015-8434, CVE-2015-8435, CVE-2015-8436, CVE-2015-8437, CVE-2015-8441, CVE-2015-8442, CVE-2015-8447, CVE-2015-8448, CVE-2015-8449, CVE-2015-8450, CVE-2015-8452, CVE-2015-8454) - An out-of-bounds access flaw exists that is triggered when handling a specially crafted MP4 file. This may potentially allow a context-dependent attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8652, CVE-2015-8654, CVE-2015-8655, CVE-2015-8656, CVE-2015-8657, CVE-2015-8820) - A use-after-free flaw exists that is triggered when handling a specially crafted MP4 file. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference and already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8653, CVE-2015-8822, CVE-2015-8821) - A flaw exists that is triggered when handling a specially crafted MP4 file. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference an uninitialized pointer and potentially execute arbitrary code.(CVE-2015-8658)

Solution

Upgrade to Adobe Flash Player version 20.0.0.228 or later. If 20.x cannot be obtained, ESR version 18.0.0.268 has also been patched for these vulnerabilities.
