Adobe Flash Player Multimedia File Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Adobe Flash Player is prone to a remote buffer-overflow vulnerability when handling multimedia files with certain tags.

An attacker may exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will likely result in denial-of-service conditions.

Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions are affected.

NOTE: This issue has been fixed in all versions of Adobe Flash Player

Initial investigations suggested that the vulnerability had not been patched in the standalone Adobe Flash Player version for Linux and the standalone Adobe Flash Player version with debug capabilities for Microsoft Windows. The observed behavior that led to this initial conclusion has since been confirmed by Adobe as intended by design.
