Bug Description

Version 7.0.63 and earlier are known to be vulnerable. Additionally, it seems likely, based on time frame, that this vulnerability isn't fixed in Adobe's current 7.0.68 release either.

CVE 2006-5330 mentiones that 7.0.63 and earlier are known to be vulnerable. I don't find any official statement that 7.0.68 would have this vulnerability. Has anyone more info?

I used a proof-of-concept SWF to verify that the CRLF injection vulnerability still exists in 7.0.68. There's no statement about it because they appear to only be fixing the "latest" release, which is the 9.x series. :(

Kees, where's that "proof-of-concept SWF" so that anyone can verify that 7.0.68 would have this vulnerability?

Unfortunately, the PoC isn't public. I will try to get another that is.
