Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Adobe Flash Player, the

Description

Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted SWF
file using Adobe Flash Player, possibly resulting in execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service
condition. Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to bypass the Same
Origin Policy or read the clipboard via unspecified vectors.
