-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of the Adobe Shockwave Player. User interaction
is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit
a malicious page or open a malicious file.

Director file format. The code within the dirapi.dll does not properly
validate substructure elements before using them to manipulate memory.
This can lead to memory corruption which can be leveraged to execute
arbitrary code under the context of the user running the browser.
