Security Advisory

1) Buffer overflow

Severity: High

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-2013-0504

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, caused by improper bounds checking by the Flash Player broker service. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted Web site serving malicious Flash (SWF) content, trick the victim into visiting 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.

Mitigation

Update Adobe Flash Player to version 11.6.602.171.
Update Adobe Flash Player for Linux to version 11.2.202.273.

Q & A

Can this vulnerability be exploited remotely?

Yes. This vulnerability can be exploited by a remote non-authenticated attacker via the Internet.

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

No. We are not aware of malware exploiting this vulnerability. However, a fully functional exploit for this vulnerability is available.

2) Arbitrary code execution

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-2013-0648

CWE-ID: CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

Description

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

The weakness exists due to an error in the ExternalInterface ActionScript feature. A remote attacker can create specially crafted Web site serving malicious Flash (SWF) content, trick the victim into visiting it 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.

Mitigation

Update Adobe Flash Player to version 11.6.602.171.
Update Adobe Flash Player for Linux to version 11.2.202.273.

CVE-ID: CVE-2013-0643

CWE-ID: CWE-264 - Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Description

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

The weakness exists due to an error when handling permissions of the Flash Player Firefox sandbox. A remote attacker can create specially crafted Web site serving malicious Flash (SWF) content, trick the victim into visiting it, bypass the sandbox restrictions and execute arbitrary code outside the sandbox 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.
