Adobe Flash and AIR Vulnerabilities

   Original release date: June 11, 2010
   Last revised: --
   Source: US-CERT


Systems Affected

     * Adobe Flash Player 10.0.45.2 and earlier 10.x versions
     * Adobe Flash Player 9.0.262 and earlier 9.x versions
     * Adobe AIR 1.5.3.9130 and earlier versions

     Other Adobe products that support Flash may also be vulnerable.


Overview

   According to Adobe Security Bulletin APSB10-14, there are
   vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash and AIR. These vulnerabilities
   affect Flash Player, AIR, and possibly other products that support
   Flash. A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to
   execute arbitrary code.


I. Description

   Adobe Security Bulletin APSB10-14 describes vulnerabilities in
   Adobe Flash that affects Flash Player and AIR. It may also affect
   other products that independently support Flash, such as Adobe
   Reader, Acrobat, Photoshop, Photoshop Lightroom, Freehand MX, and
   Fireworks.

   An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a
   user to open specially crafted Flash content. Flash content is
   commonly hosted on a web page, but it can also be embedded in a PDF
   and other documents or provided as a stand-alone file.

   One of these vulnerabilities, CVE-2010-1297, is being exploited
   against Flash Player, Adobe Reader, and Acrobat. Additional
   information about CVE-2010-1297 is available in US-CERT Technical
   Cyber Security Alert TA10-159A and US-CERT Vulnerability Note
   VU#486225.


II. Impact

   If a user opens specially crafted Flash content, a remote attacker
   may be able to execute arbitrary code.


III. Solution

 Update Flash and AIR

   Adobe Security Bulletin APSB10-14 recommends updating to Flash
   Player 10.1.53.64 or 9.0.277.0 and AIR to 2.0.2.12610. This will
   update the Flash web browser plug-in and ActiveX control and AIR,
   but will not update Flash support in Adobe Reader, Acrobat, or
   other products.

   To reduce your exposure to these and other Flash vulnerabilities,
   consider the following mitigation technique.

 Disable Flash in your web browser

   Uninstall Flash or restrict which sites are allowed to run Flash.
   To the extent possible, only run trusted Flash content on trusted
   domains. For more information, see Securing Your Web Browser.
