CVE-ID: CVE-2015-7648

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, trick the victim into visiting it, trigger memory corruption and execute arbitrary code with privileges of the current user.

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