Adobe SVG Viewer allows attacker to bypass Active Scripting settings
|adobe-svg-scripting-bypass (13366)||Medium Risk|
Adobe SVG Viewer (ASV) could allow a remote attacker to bypass Active Scripting restrictions. In order for ASV to determine the Active Scripting setting, the security zone is needed, which is determined by the URL of the file. ASV fails to properly determine the URL of a file embedded with an HTML OBJECT tag. This could allow a remote attacker to bypass Active Scripting settings and launch attacks against a vulnerable system.
Upgrade to the latest version of Adobe SVG Viewer (3.01 or later), available from the Adobe Systems Incorporated Web site. See References.
