Description

Adobe Shockwave Player before 11.5.8.612 does not properly validate offset values in the rcsL RIFF chunks of (1) .DIR and (2) .DCR Director movies, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) or execute arbitrary code via a crafted movie.

Solution(s)

  • adobe-shockwave-upgrade-latest

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
