Adobe Flash Player SWF dynamically created string buffer overflow
|flashplayer-swf-string-bo (28886)||High Risk|
Adobe Flash Player (formerly Macromedia Flash Player) is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking of dynamically created strings in a SWF file. By creating a malicious SWF file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system, if the attacker could persuade the victim to visit a malicious Web site.
