Adobe Flash Player before and 11.x before 11.5.502.149 on Windows and Mac OS X, before and 11.x before on Linux, before on Android 2.x and 3.x, and before on Android 4.x allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via crafted SWF content, as exploited in the wild in February 2013.

The weakness was disclosed 02/08/2013 by Steven Adair and W with Shadowserver Foundation/MITRE/Lockhead Martin CIRT as apsb13-04 as confirmed bulletin (Website). The advisory is shared at This vulnerability is uniquely identified as CVE-2013-0634 since 12/18/2012. It is possible to initiate the attack remotely. No form of authentication is needed for exploitation. Technical details are unknown but a public exploit is available. The price for an exploit might be around USD $0-$5k at the moment (estimation calculated on 05/04/2021). It is expected to see the exploit prices for this product decreasing in the near future.

A public exploit has been developed by Metasploit and been published 2 years after the advisory. It is declared as highly functional. The exploit is shared for download at We expect the 0-day to have been worth approximately $25k-$100k. The vulnerability scanner Nessus provides a plugin with the ID 64506 (Flash Player <= / 11.5.502.146 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB13-04)), which helps to determine the existence of the flaw in a target environment. It is assigned to the family Windows. The commercial vulnerability scanner Qualys is able to test this issue with plugin 166685 (SUSE Enterprise Linux Security update for flash-player (SUSE-SU-2013:0288-1)).

Upgrading to version 11.5.502.149 eliminates this vulnerability. A possible mitigation has been published even before and not after the disclosure of the vulnerability. Attack attempts may be identified with Snort ID 31968. Furthermore it is possible to detect and prevent this kind of attack with TippingPoint and the filter 12764.

The vulnerability is also documented in the databases at SecurityFocus (BID 57787), Secunia (SA52078), SecurityTracker (ID 1028090), Vulnerability Center (SBV-38348) and Tenable (64506). Further details are available at The entry 7616 is pretty similar.
