Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in Adobe Audition. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted '.ses' file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

The vendor was notified of one vulnerability on February 3, 2011.

The original advisory for one of the vulnerabilities is available at:

Diego Juarez, Eduardo Koch, and Laura Balian from Core Security Technologies reported one vulnerability. Gjoko Krstic of Zero Science Lab reported the other vulnerability.
