Resource Management Errors
The ActionScript 2 virtual machine in Adobe Flash Player 10.x before 10.0.12.36 and 9.x before 184.108.40.206, and Adobe AIR before 1.5, does not validate character elements during retrieval from the dictionary data structure, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted PDF file.
CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category can lead to unexpected software behavior, loss of access, file modification, sensitive information disclosure, system crash, denial of service, and code execution.
