Published: 2009-12-17 07:14:37
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Impact:
Successful exploitation will allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code, gain elevated privileges, gain knowledge of certain information and conduct clickjacking attacks.

Affected Versions:
Adobe AIR version prior to 1.5.3 Adobe Flash Player 10 version prior to 10.0.42.34 on Windows

Technical Details:
The multiple Flaws are due to: - An error occurred while parsing JPEG dimensions contained within an SWF file can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow. - An unspecified error may allow injection of data and potentially lead to execution of arbitrary code. - An unspecified error possibly related to 'getProperty()' can be exploited to corrupt memory and may allow execution of arbitrary code. - An unspecified error can be exploited to corrupt memory and may allow execution of arbitrary code. - An integer overflow error when generating ActionScript exception handlers in 'Verifier::parseExceptionHandlers()' can be exploited to corrupt memory. - Various unspecified errors may potentially allow execution of arbitrary code. - An error may disclose information about local file names.

Recommendations:
Update to Adobe Air 1.5.3 or Adobe Flash Player 10.0.42.34.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
