TPTI-10-13: Adobe Shockwave Director tSAC Chunk Remote Code Execution Vulnerability http://dvlabs.tippingpoint.com/advisory/TPTI-10-13 August 24, 2010

-- CVE ID: CVE-2010-2866

-- CVSS: 10, (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

-- Affected Vendors: Adobe

-- Affected Products: Adobe Shockwave Player

-- Vulnerability Details: This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Adobe Shockwave player. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file.

The specific flaw exists within the code responsible for parsing Director's RIFF-based file format. While parsing the tSAC chunk, the DIRAPI module does not properly verify the signedness of a count value within an undocumented structure. By providing a large enough negative value a pointer can be miscalculated leading to memory corruption. This can be exploited by a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code under the context of the user running the web browser.

-- Vendor Response: Adobe has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
