Adobe Shockwave Player rcsL chunk memory code execution
|adobe-shockwave-rcsl-code-exec (62688)||High Risk|
Adobe Shockwave Player could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a memory corruption error in the Director (dirapi.dll) module when processing offsets while parsing the rcsL chunk. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted Director file, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to corrupt memory to execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
