Description


Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Windows XP, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a use-after-free error in the bundled version of Flash Player when unloading Flash objects while these are still being accessed using script code. This can be exploited to corrupt memory via a specially crafted web page.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in Flash Player bundled with a fully patched Windows XP SP2 and is also confirmed in an old version 6.0.79 of Adobe Flash Player.

NOTE: The version of Flash Player bundled with Windows XP is also affected by a number of other vulnerabilities previously disclosed and fixed in later versions of Adobe Flash Player.


Solution:
Uninstall the bundled version of Flash Player and optionally install the latest supported version of Flash Player from Adobe.

Provided and/or discovered by:
Carsten Eiram and Dyon Balding, Secunia Research.

The vendor also credits:
* Will Dormann of CERT/CC.
* TippingPoint and the Zero Day Initiative.
