Description

The System.setClipboard method in ActionScript in Adobe Flash Player 9.0.124.0 and earlier allows remote attackers to populate the clipboard with a URL that is difficult to delete and does not require user interaction to populate the clipboard, as exploited in the wild in August 2008.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-flash-player
  • 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.
