Abstract
This thesis attempts to study and categorize vulnerabilities in common software packages. This study results in a proposed taxonomy that will help in protecting vulnerable systems, in order to better enable Computer Network Defense operations. Additionally, this taxonomy will help focus further research in developing exploits aimed at these vulnerabilities, for use in Computer Network Attack and Exploitation operations. Throughout this study, Adobe Flash, a widely used Web browser plug in is used as a case study, due to the many known vulnerabilities and exploits tailored to Adobe Flash that exist.
