PROBLEM:

Adobe Flash Player Multiple Bugs Let Remote Users Obtain Information, Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks, and Execute Arbitrary Code.

PLATFORM:

Adobe Flash Player 10.3.183.7 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris.
Adobe Flash Player 10.3.186.6 and earlier versions for Android.

ABSTRACT:

An attacker can exploit this issue by enticing an unsuspecting victim into visiting a malicious website.

SecurityTracker Alert ID: 1026084

IMPACT ASSESSMENT:

High

Discussion:

Critical vulnerabilities have been identified in Adobe Flash Player 10.3.183.7 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris, and Adobe Flash Player 10.3.186.6 and earlier versions for Android. These vulnerabilities could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. There are reports that one of these vulnerabilities (CVE-2011-2444) is being exploited in the wild in active targeted attacks designed to trick the user into clicking on a malicious link delivered in an email message. This universal cross-site scripting issue could be used to take actions on a user's behalf on any website or webmail provider if the user visits a malicious website.

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger an AVM stack overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2011-2426, CVE-2011-2427]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.
A remote user can trigger a logic error to potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2011-2428].
A remote user can bypass a security control to obtain potentially sensitive information [CVE-2011-2429].
A remote user can trigger a streaming media logic error to potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2011-2430].

Impact:

An attacker can exploit this issue by enticing an unsuspecting victim into visiting a malicious website. An attacker can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the context of an arbitrary website. This could allow the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials and launch other attacks.

Solution:

Adobe recommends users of Adobe Flash Player 10.3.183.7 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris update to Adobe Flash Player 10.3.183.10.

Users of Adobe Flash Player for Android 10.3.186.6 and earlier versions should update to Adobe Flash Player for Android 10.3.186.7.
