Description


Some security issues and vulnerabilities have been reported in Adobe Flash Player, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions, manipulate certain data, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, or disclose sensitive information.

1) An error while enforcing cross-domain policy files can be exploited to bypass certain security restrictions.

This is related to vulnerability #4 in:
SA28161

2) An ActionScript implementation error can be exploited to determine if a port on a remote host is opened or closed.

This is related to vulnerability #8 in:
SA28161

3) The problem is that the "FileReference.browse()" and "FileReference.download()" methods can be called without user interaction and can potentially be used to trick a user into downloading or uploading files.

4) An error when interpreting HTTP response headers can be exploited to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

5) An unspecified error can be exploited to facilitate DNS rebinding attacks and violate the same origin policy.

6) An error when interpreting an unspecified ActionScript attribute can be exploited to inject arbitrary HTML code.

7) An error when interpreting policy files can be exploited to bypass a non-root domain policy.

8) An error when handling the "jar:" protocol in Mozilla browsers can be exploited to disclose sensitive information.

9) An error in the Flash Player ActiveX control for Windows can be exploited to disclose sensitive information.

10) Multiple input validation errors in the parsing of SWF files can be exploited to disclose potentially sensitive information or to potentially execute arbitrary code.

The vulnerabilities are reported in version 9.0.124.0 and prior.
