Re: Flaws in Adobe Shockwave Adobe to patch 2-year-old Shockwave vulnerability next year
Adobe plans in February to close a dangerous hole in its Shockwave application that causes the application to be downgraded when a user launches older multimedia content, allowing hackers to target years-old vulnerabilities.
The U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (U.S. CERT) issued an Advisory on the vulnerability, which could allow an attacker to deliver malware and execute arbitrary code, considered to be one of the most dangerous kinds of flaws.
U.S. CERT notified Adobe of the problem on Oct. 27, 2010, but an Adobe spokesperson said Wednesday that the problem will be closed with the next major upgrade of Shockwave, scheduled for Feb. 12.
