Security Advisory

1) Memory corruption

Severity: High

CVSSv3: 8.3 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2013-5332

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

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The weakness exists due to boundary error. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted Web site, 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

Install update from vendor's website.

2) Type confusion

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-2013-5331

CWE-ID: CWE-843 - Access of Resource Using Incompatible Type ('Type Confusion')

Exploit availability: Yes [Search exploit]

Description

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

The weakness exists due to type confusion error. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted Web site or . swf file, trick the victim into visiting it and execute arbitrary code with privileges of the current user.
