Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Adobe Flash Player: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201204-07)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: April 17, 2012
Bug(s): #390149, #404101, #407023, #410005
ID: 201204-07

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player, the worst of which
might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.


Background

The Adobe Flash Player is a renderer for the SWF file format, which is
commonly used to provide interactive websites.


Affected Packages

Package: www-plugins/adobe-flash
Vulnerable: < 11.2.202.228
Unaffected: >= 11.2.202.228
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Adobe Flash Player.
Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted SWF
file, 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 intended access restrictions,
bypass cross-domain policy, inject arbitrary web script, or obtain
sensitive information.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Adobe Flash Player users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
      ">=www-plugins/adobe-flash-11.2.202.228"
