Summary

Severity rating

   Adobe categorizes this as an important issue and recommends

Details

   Input validation errors have been identified in code generated by
   Presenter 6 and Presenter 7 that could lead to potential cross-site
   scripting attacks. The relevant files that require an update are

   installations, users are highly encouraged to update any instances of
   viewer.swf or loadflash.js generated by Presenter 7 already deployed

   re-generated and re-deployed.

   These vulnerabilities are remotely exploitable. Adobe recommends
