Secunia Research has discovered four vulnerabilities in Adobe Shockwave Player, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerabilities are caused by four integer overflow errors when processing a certain block type. These can be exploited to cause heap-based buffer overflows via specially crafted Shockwave files.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
