2008-03-28 - "Warnings about the insecurity of online Flash multimedia created with all but the most recent authoring tools have largely fallen upon deaf ears.. While software makers have taken steps to close the security holes, Web site owners continue to host older files created by older authoring programs that are vulnerable to cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, Rich Cannings, information security engineer of search giant Google, told security professionals... Using a specially-crafted Web address, an attacker could use a vulnerable Flash file on a major Web site to gain access to the user's account on that site, once the victim logs in. A bad Flash file on a banking site, for example, could put that bank's customers at risk, allowing an attacker the ability to access the victims' funds... until Web site developers rebuild their Flash multimedia with the latest authoring tools, the older files still present on their company's Web sites could be used by fraudsters to attack the site's users... Adobe estimates that 98 percent of Web users have the Adobe Flash Player installed. Flash is widely used to create the advertisements hosted on most Web sites. Because the advertisements are generally provided by third-party services, using the affiliate networks to send out malicious Flash advertisements has become a serious vector of attack..."

June 3, 2008 - "...Google Analytics has a nifty feature where it will give you information on your visitorís browser capabilities, including the version of Flash installed down to the revision level... the statistics confirmed the low percentage of up-to-date Flash players.
Date % up-to-date
5/26 15.28
5/27 15.93
5/28 16.50
5/29 17.51
Remember, this is still 7 weeks after the update was released... After roughly 2 months, less than 20% of users had applied an update that addresses a critical remote code execution vulnerability... How does the average user know that they should update Flash and how to do so? By reading the trade press? Microsoft learned that you have to harass the user into patching their operating system and even then, it should be as automatic as possible. As Flash currently enjoys an essentially universal market share, now is the time to make significant security improvements without having to repeat the lessons that others have had to so painfully learn..."

Acrobat [Reader] 0-Day On the Loose
- http://www.shadowserver.org/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Calendar.20090219
2009-02-19 - "The Shadowserver Foundation has recently become aware of a very severe vulnerability in Adobe Acrobat affecting versions 8.x and 9 that is currently on the loose in the wild and being actively exploited. We are aware of several different variations of this attack, however, we were provided with a sample last week in which we were permitted to analyze and detail in this post. We want to make it clear that we did not discover this vulnerability and are only posting this information to make sure others are aware and can adequately protect themselves. All of our testing was done on Adobe Acrobat Reader 8.1.0, 8.1.1, 8.1.2, 8.1.3 (latest release of 8), and 9.0.0 (latest release of 9)... We would HIGHLY recommend that you DISABLE JAVASCRIPT in your Adobe Acrobat [Reader] products. You have the choice of small loss in functionality and a crash versus your systems being compromised and all your data being stolen. It should be an easy choice. Disabling JavaScript is easy. This is how it can be done in Acrobat Reader:
Click: Edit -> Preferences -> JavaScript and uncheck Enable Acrobat JavaScript ... Adobe has since issued a public advisory* about this issue that has been posted here. They are expecting an update by March 11th, 2009 for Adobe 9 and updates for other version (8 and 7) to follow soon after..."

21 February 2009 - "...Work Arounds & Windows Group Policy Object (GPO)
As we mentioned the main work around for this is to disable JavaScript. Acrobat will still crash but the exploit should fail. While all platforms are reportedly affected, we should note that we have only seen active exploits for Windows and not Linux or OS X platforms. Once again to disable JavaScript in Acrobat [Reader], take the following steps:
Click: Edit -> Preferences -> JavaScript and uncheck Enable Acrobat JavaScript
Elazar Broad also wrote into us the other day and provided a GPO that can be used to disable JavaScript for Adobe Acrobat [Reader]. We have not tested it but you can grab it by clicking here*. Basically these are the keys of interest (from HKEY_CURRENT_USER):
Adobe Acrobat Reader:
Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\x.0\JSPrefs
Adobe Acrobat:
Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\x.0\JSPrefs
Setting the DWORD "bEnableJS" to 0 will disable JavaScript...
Details Released
We knew it would not take too long - the details of the vulnerable function and enough information to potentially recreate the exploit have now been published publicly... Expect that a wider set of attackers will now start using this exploit in the near future before the patch is released. In other words... DISABLE JAVASCRIPT and patch as soon as it becomes available!"

So far in 2009 we have found 663 targeted attack files and the most popular file type is now PDF. Why has it changed? Primarily because there has been more vulnerabilities in Adobe Acrobat Reader than in the Microsoft Office applications...

> http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?storyid=6847
Last Updated: 2009-07-22 22:26:39 UTC ...(Version: 3) - "... the vulnerable component is actually the Flash player or, better said, the code used by the Flash player which is obviously shared with Adobe Reader/Acrobat. This increases the number of vectors for this attack: the malicious Flash file can be embedded in PDF documents which will cause Adobe Reader to execute it OR it can be used to exploit the Flash player directly, making it a drive-by attack as well. And indeed, when tested with Internet Explorer and the latest Flash player (version 10), the exploit silently drops a Trojan and works "as advertised". Another interesting thing I noticed is that the Trojan, which is downloaded in the second stage, is partially XOR-ed – the attackers probably did this to evade IDSes or AV programs scanning HTTP traffic. At the moment, the detection for both the exploit and the Trojan is pretty bad (only 7/41 for the Trojan, according to VirusTotal*)...
UPDATE: At the moment there is a low number of malicious sites serving the exploit, but we confirmed that the links have been injected in legitimate web sites to create a drive-by attack, as expected. It appears that the attackers created two different shellcodes as well, one for Firefox users (still have to confirm this) and the other for Internet Explorer users (this one is -confirmed- to work)."

Sites pulling sneaky Flash cookie-snoop
- http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/08/19/flash_cookies/
19 August 2009 - "Many websites are using Flash-based cookies to track users, but often omit to mention this in their privacy policies... Browser-based cookies constitute a well understood and widely deployed technology that poses serious questions about privacy, depending on its usage. What's far less well known is that Adobe Flash software also features cookies that can be used in much the same way as HTTP cookies. Flash cookies can be used for storing the volume level of a Flash video but the technology can also be used as "secondary, redundant unique identifiers that enable advertisers to circumvent user preferences and self-help"... researchers conclude that Flash cookies are more effective at tracking users' visits around websites than traditional HTTP cookies because they operate in the shadows and are infrequently removed. By default Flash cookies have no built-in expiration date. Browser-based actions such as deleting browser histories or switching to private mode does not affect the operation of Flash cookies..."

Better privacy - "... Concerning privacy Flash- and DOM Storage objects are most critical. This addon was made to make users aware of those hidden, never expiring objects and to offer an easy way to get rid of them - since browsers are unable to do that for you.

October 8, 2009 - "Adobe is aware of reports of a critical vulnerability in Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.1.3 and earlier (CVE-2009-3459) on Windows, Macintosh and UNIX. There are reports that this issue is being exploited in the wild in limited targeted attacks; the exploit targets Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.1.3 on Windows. Adobe plans to resolve this issue as part of the upcoming Adobe Reader and Acrobat quarterly security update*, scheduled for release on October 13. Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.1.3 customers with DEP enabled on Windows Vista will be protected from this exploit. Disabling JavaScript also mitigates against this specific exploit, although a variant that does not rely on JavaScript could be possible. In the meantime, Adobe is also in contact with Antivirus and Security vendors regarding the issue and recommends users keep their anti-virus definitions up to date..."

Targeted (PDF) attacks...

January 18, 2010 - "F-Secure Labs has learned of another interesting targeted attack. In this case, malicious PDF files were emailed to US defense contractors. While the "Aurora" attacks against Google and others happened in December 2009, this happened just last week. The PDF file was quite convincing and it looked like it came from the Department of Defense... The document talks about a real conference to be held in Las Vegas in March. When opened to Adobe Reader, the file exploited the CVE-2009-4324* vulnerability. This is the doc.media.newPlayer vulnerability that Adobe patched last Tuesday. The exploit dropped a file called Updater.exe (md5: 3677fc94bc0dd89138b04a5a7a0cf2e0). This is a backdoor that connects to IP address 140.136.148.42. In order to avoid detection, it bypasses the local web proxy when doing this connection. Anybody who controls that IP will gain access to the infected computer and the company network. This particular IP is located in Taiwan."

Flash exploits in-the-wild - SPAM attachments...
- http://www.f-secure.com/weblog/archives/00002127.html
March 23, 2011 - "Attackers have been taking advantage of the situation in Japan to trick their targets into opening malicious files. These cases have used infected Excel attachments with Flash exploits... Another sample we've seen (md5:20ee090487ce1a670c192f9ac18c9d18) is an Excel file containing an embedded Flash object that exploits a known vulnerability (CVE-2011-0609). When the XLS file is opened, it shows an empty Excel spreadsheet and starts exploit code via a Flash object. The Flash object starts by doing a heap-spray... the Flash object constructs and loads a second Flash object in runtime... This second Flash object is the main exploit in this malware and it exploits CVE-2011-0609 to execute the shellcode in the heap... As an aside: the main exploit appears to have been delivered in this fashion in an attempt to evade detection. As it is loaded in memory, no physical file is available for scanning by an antivirus engine. Embedding the Flash object that loads the main exploit in an Excel file may be an attempt to further disguise the attack... users should update their Flash player as Adobe has already released a patch for this particular vulnerability.

Drive-by Flash cache attacks...
- http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/04/19/amnesty_drive_by_cache/
19 April 2011 - "Miscreants have deployed a subtle variant of the well established drive-by-download attack tactics against the website of human rights organisation Amnesty International. In traditional drive-by-download attacks malicious code is planted on websites. This code redirects surfers to an exploit site, which relies on browser vulnerabilities or other exploits to download and execute malware onto visiting PCs. The attack on the Amnesty website, detected by security firm Armorize*, relied on a different sequence of events. In this case, malicious scripts are used to locate the malware which is already sitting in the browser's cache directory, before executing it. This so-called drive-by cache approach make attacks harder to detect because no attempt is made to download a file and write it to disk, a suspicious maneuver many security software packages are liable to detect. By bypassing this step dodgy sorts are more likely to slip their wares past security software undetected. The Amnesty International attack ultimately relied on an Adobe Flash zero-day exploit, patched by Adobe** late last week..."

Jul 13, 2011 - "Six out of every 10 users of Adobe Reader are running unpatched versions of the program, leaving them vulnerable to a variety of malware attacks... In a study of its own antivirus users, Avast Software found that 60.2 percent of those with Adobe Reader were running a vulnerable version of the program... More than 80 percent of Avast users run a version of Adobe Reader... Brad Arkin, senior director of product security and privacy at Adobe, agreed with the Avast analysis. "We find that most consumers donít bother updating a free app, such as Adobe Reader, as PDF files can be viewed in the older version," he said... Malware PDF exploit packages will typically look for a variety of security weaknesses in the targeted computer, attacking when an uncovered vulnerability is discovered..."

Flash click-jacking exploit...
- https://isc.sans.edu/diary.html?storyid=11857
Last Updated: 2011-10-21 - "... a blog post about a vulnerability in Flash that allows for a click jacking attack to turn on the clients camera and microphone. The attack is conceptually similar to the original click jacking attack presented in 2008. Back then Flash adjusted the control panel. The original attack "framed" the entire Flash control page. To prevent the attack, Adobe added frame busting code to the settings page. Feross' attack doesn't frame the entire page, but instead includes just the SWF file used to adjust the settings, bypassing the frame busting javascript in the process.

Update: Adobe fixed the problem. The fix does not require any patches for client side code. Instead, adobe modified the control page and applet that users load from Adobe's servers. Details from Adobe:

Adobe Flex SDK security update available
- https://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb11-25.html
CVE number: CVE-2011-2461
Platform: Windows, Macintosh and Linux
November 30, 2011 - "... An important vulnerability has been identified in the Adobe Flex SDK 4.5.1 and earlier 4.x versions and 3.x versions on the Windows, Macintosh and Linux operating systems:
All Web-based (-not- AIR-based) Flex applications built using any release of Flex 3.x (including 3.0, 3.0.1, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.4.1, 3.5, 3.5A and 3.6) may be vulnerable.
Web-based (-not- AIR-based) Flex applications built using any release of Flex 4.x (including 4.0, 4.1, 4.5 and 4.5.1) that were compiled using static linkage of the Flex libraries rather than RSL (runtime shared library) linkage are vulnerable.
Most Flex 4.x applications that were compiled in the default way (specifically, using RSL linkage) are not vulnerable; however, there are rare cases in which they may be vulnerable. To determine whether an application is vulnerable, customers should use the SWF patching tool described in the tech note*.
This vulnerability could lead to cross-site scripting issues in Flex applications. Adobe recommends users of the Adobe Flex SDK 4.5.1 and earlier 4.x versions and 3.x versions update their software, verify whether any SWF files in their applications are vulnerable, and update any vulnerable SWF files using the instructions and tools provided as outlined in the tech note* ..."

Adobe Reader/Acrobat Security Advisory - APSA11-04
- http://www.adobe.com/support/security/advisories/apsa11-04.html
December 6, 2011
Summary : A critical vulnerability has been identified in Adobe Reader X (10.1.1) and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh, Adobe Reader 9.4.6 and earlier 9.x versions for UNIX, and Adobe Acrobat X (10.1.1) and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh. This vulnerability (CVE-2011-2462) could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. There are reports that the vulnerability is being actively exploited in limited, targeted attacks in the wild against Adobe Reader 9.x on Windows. We are in the process of finalizing a fix for the issue and expect to make available an update for Adobe Reader 9.x and Acrobat 9.x for Windows no later than the week of December 12, 2011. Because Adobe Reader X Protected Mode and Adobe Acrobat X Protected View would prevent an exploit of this kind from executing, we are currently planning to address this issue in Adobe Reader X and Acrobat X for Windows with the next quarterly security update for Adobe Reader and Acrobat, currently scheduled for January 10, 2012. We are planning to address this issue in Adobe Reader and Acrobat X and earlier versions for Macintosh as part of the next quarterly update scheduled for January 10, 2012. An update to address this issue in Adobe Reader 9.x for UNIX is planned for January 10, 2012. For further context on this schedule, please see the corresponding ASSET blog* post."
