Title: Adobe Flash Player: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201001-02)
Date: January 03, 2010
Multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player might allow remote attackers
to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service.
The Adobe Flash Player is a renderer for the SWF file format, which is
commonly used to provide interactive websites.
Vulnerable: < 10.0.42.34
Unaffected: >= 10.0.42.34
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Adobe Flash Player:
- An anonymous researcher working with the Zero Day
Initiative reported that Adobe Flash Player does not properly process
JPEG files (CVE-2009-3794).
- Jim Cheng of EffectiveUI reported
an unspecified data injection vulnerability (CVE-2009-3796).
- Bing Liu of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs reported multiple
unspecified memory corruption vulnerabilities (CVE-2009-3797,
- Damian Put reported an integer overflow in the
Verifier::parseExceptionHandlers() function (CVE-2009-3799).
- Will Dormann of CERT reported multiple unspecified Denial of
Service vulnerabilities (CVE-2009-3800).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted SWF
file, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running the application, or a Denial of
Service via unknown vectors.
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 ">=www-plugins/adobe-flash-10.0.42.34"
