-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of the Adobe Shockwave Player. User interaction
is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit
a malicious page or open a malicious file.

The specific flaw exists within the Lnam chunk inside Adobe's RIFF-based
Director file format. The code within the IML32.dll does not properly
validate certain fields before using them to calculate sizes used for
later memory copy operations. This can lead to memory corruption which
can be leveraged to execute arbitrary code under the context of the user
running the browser.

-- Vendor Response:
Adobe has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More
