Security Advisory

1) Buffer overflow

Severity: Critical

CVSSv3: 8.9 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:F/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2013-0633

CWE-ID: CWE-119 - Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The weakness exists due to buffer overflow in ActiveX version of Flash Player. A remote attacker can create specially crafted .swf file, trick the victim into opening it, trigger memory corruption and execute arbitrary code with privileges of the current user.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in arbitrary code execution on the vulnerable system.

Note: the vulnerability was being actively exploited.
