Description

The implementation of pami RIFF chunk parsing in Adobe Shockwave Player before 11.5.7.609 does not validate a certain value from a file before using it in file-pointer calculations, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted .dir (aka Director) file.
