Description Adam Mariš 2016-12-13 15:10:48 UTC
Adobe Security Bulletin APSB16-39 for Adobe Flash Player describes multiple flaws that can possibly lead to code execution when Flash Player is used to play a specially crafted SWF file.

Quoting from the APSB16-39:

These updates resolve use-after-free vulnerabilities that could lead to code execution (CVE-2016-7872, CVE-2016-7877, CVE-2016-7878, CVE-2016-7879, CVE-2016-7880, CVE-2016-7881, CVE-2016-7892).

These updates resolve buffer overflow vulnerabilities that could lead to code execution (CVE-2016-7867, CVE-2016-7868, CVE-2016-7869, CVE-2016-7870).

These updates resolve memory corruption vulnerabilities that could lead to code execution (CVE-2016-7871, CVE-2016-7873, CVE-2016-7874, CVE-2016-7875, CVE-2016-7876).

These updates resolve a security bypass vulnerability (CVE-2016-7890).
