Adobe Flash Player contains multiple vulnerabilities that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (DoS) condition on a targeted system.
This update corrects three vulnerabilities. One resolved vulnerability is due to a buffer overflow vulnerability in the affected software, which could lead to arbitrary code execution or cause the affected software to terminate abruptly. In addition, one memory corruption vulnerability and one integer overflow vulnerability that exists when resampling a user-supplied PCM buffer, leading to arbitrary code execution on the system have been mitigated.
The following products are vulnerable:
- Adobe Flash Player for Windows versions 11.7.700.224 and prior
- Adobe Flash Player for Macintosh versions 11.7.700.225 and prior
- Adobe Flash Player for Linux versions 126.96.36.1991 and prior
- Adobe Flash Player for Google Chrome version 11.7.700.225
- Adobe Flash Player for Android versions 188.8.131.52 and prior
An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code or cause a DoS condition on the system. To exploit these vulnerabilities, the attacker may provide a file to the user and persuade the user to open or execute the file by using misleading language or instructions.
Administrators are advised to apply the appropriate updates.
