Date: September 05, 2012
Bug(s): #431432, #432286
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Adobe Flash Player, the
worst of which could result in execution of arbitrary code.
The Adobe Flash Player is a renderer for the SWF file format, which is
commonly used to provide interactive websites.
Vulnerable: < 188.8.131.52
Unaffected: >= 184.108.40.206
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities have been discovered in Adobe Flash
Player. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open specially crafted SWF
content, 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 obtain sensitive information.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Adobe Flash Player users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
