Description

The version of Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 3.7.0.272. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • An untrusted search path vulnerability exists in the installer due to looking for specific files or libraries in the current working directory which may not be trusted or under user control. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted library (DLL) file, to inject and execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-4157)

  • An unquoted search path vulnerability exists in AdobeUpdateService.exe that allows a local attacker to inject and execute arbitrary code via an executable in the %SYSTEMDRIVE% directory. (CVE-2016-4158)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
