SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1026703
CVE Reference:   CVE-2012-0752, CVE-2012-0753, CVE-2012-0754, CVE-2012-0755, CVE-2012-0756, CVE-2012-0767   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Feb 17 2012
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 11.1.102.55 and prior versions; 11.1.112.61 and prior for Android 4.x; 11.1.111.5 and prior for Android 2.x and 3.x
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Adobe Flash Player. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote user can create a specially crafted Flash content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error in a Windows ActiveX control and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2012-0751]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A remote user can create a specially crafted Flash content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2012-0752, CVE-2012-0753, CVE-2012-0754]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A remote user can create a specially crafted Flash content that, when loaded by the target user, will bypass security restrictions and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2012-0755, CVE-2012-0756]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser [CVE-2012-0767]. The code will run in the security context of an arbitrary site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Xu Liu of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs, Bo Qu of Palo Alto Networks, Alexander Gavrun (via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative), Eduardo Vela Nava of the Google Security Team, and Google reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with an arbitrary site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix for CVE-2012-0752, CVE-2012-0753, CVE-2012-0754, CVE-2012-0755, CVE-2012-0756, and CVE-2012-0767.

1. Summary:

An updated Adobe Flash Player package that fixes multiple security issues
is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 Supplementary.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Supplementary (v. 5) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Supplementary (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Supplementary (v. 5) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

The flash-plugin package contains a Mozilla Firefox compatible Adobe Flash
Player web browser plug-in.

This update fixes multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player. These
vulnerabilities are detailed on the Adobe security page APSB12-03, listed
in the References section.

Multiple security flaws were found in the way flash-plugin displayed
certain SWF content. An attacker could use these flaws to create a
specially-crafted SWF file that would cause flash-plugin to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code when the victim loaded a page
containing the specially-crafted SWF content. (CVE-2012-0752,
CVE-2012-0753, CVE-2012-0754, CVE-2012-0755, CVE-2012-0756)

A flaw in flash-plugin could allow an attacker to conduct cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks if a victim were tricked into visiting a
specially-crafted web page. (CVE-2012-0767)

All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which
upgrades Flash Player to version 10.3.183.15.
