Description

server/parser/sprite_definition.cpp in GNU Gnash (aka GNU Flash Player) 0.7.2 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a large number of SHOWFRAME elements within a DEFINESPRITE element, which triggers memory corruption and enables the attacker to call free with an arbitrary address, probably resultant from a buffer overflow.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-gnash
  • suse-upgrade-suse-release

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.
