Vulnerability Note VU#935737
Adobe Flash Player may load arbitrary, malformed cross-domain policy files
Adobe Flash Player may load arbitrary, malformed cross-domain policy files. This could allow an attacker to control cross-domain data loading, potentially allowing the attacker to gain access to sensitive information or to manipulate content in other domains.
Adobe Flash Player is a widely deployed application for multimedia viewing on the internet. A vulnerability exists in the way that Flash Player handles cross-domain policy files. An attacker could use a specially crafted cross-domain policy file to circumvent a site's Flash content data loading security polices.
A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to conduct cross-domain and cross-site scripting attacks on sites hosting Flash content. This could allow the attacker to read data or modify Flash content, possibly gaining access to sensitive information or spoofing web site content.
Adobe has released an update for Flash Player to address this vulnerability. Please see Adobe Security bulletin APSB07-20.
