Adobe Flash Player and AIR are prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will likely result in denial-of-service conditions.
Run all software as a nonprivileged user with minimal access rights.
To reduce the impact of latent vulnerabilities, run all server processes with the minimal amount of privileges required for functionality.
Deploy network intrusion detection systems to monitor network traffic for malicious activity.
Deploy NIDS to monitor network traffic for signs of anomalous or suspicious activity. This includes but is not limited to requests that include explained incoming and outgoing traffic. This may indicate exploit attempts to activity that results from successful exploits.
Do not follow links provided by unknown or untrusted sources.
To reduce the likelihood of attacks, never visit sites of questionable integrity or follow links provided by unfamiliar or untrusted sources.
Implement multiple redundant layers of security.
Various memory-protection schemes (such as nonexecutable and randomly mapped memory segments) may hinder an attacker's ability to exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code.
Updates are available. Please see the references or vendor advisory for more information.
