Description

The version of Adobe Flash Player installed on the remote Mac OS X host is equal or prior to version 18.0.0.161. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to improper validation of unspecified user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted Flash content, to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
