Title: Macromedia Flash Player: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 200603-20)
Date: March 21, 2006
Updated: May 28, 2009
Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified that allows arbitrary code execution on a user's system via the handling of malicious SWF files.
The Macromedia Flash Player is a renderer for the popular SWF filetype which is commonly used to provide interactive websites, digital experiences and mobile content.
Vulnerable: < 7.0.63
Unaffected: >= 7.0.63
Architectures: All supported architectures
The Macromedia Flash Player contains multiple unspecified vulnerabilities.
An attacker serving a maliciously crafted SWF file could entice a user to view the SWF file and execute arbitrary code on the user's machine.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Macromedia Flash Player users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-plugins/adobe-flash-7.0.63"
