3. Description:

The flash-plugin package contains a Mozilla Firefox compatible Adobe Flash
Player web browser plug-in.

This update fixes multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player. These
vulnerabilities are detailed on the Adobe security pages APSA10-01 and
APSB10-14, listed in the References section.

Multiple security flaws were found in the way flash-plugin displayed
certain SWF content. An attacker could use these flaws to create a
specially-crafted SWF file that would cause flash-plugin to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code when the victim loaded a page
containing the specially-crafted SWF content. (CVE-2009-3793,
CVE-2010-1297, CVE-2010-2160, CVE-2010-2161, CVE-2010-2162, CVE-2010-2163,

CVE-2010-2187, CVE-2010-2188)

An input sanitization flaw was found in the way flash-plugin processed
certain URLs. An attacker could use this flaw to conduct cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks if a victim were tricked into visiting a
specially-crafted web page. (CVE-2010-2179)

A denial of service flaw was found in the way flash-plugin processed
certain SWF content. An attacker could use this flaw to create a
specially-crafted SWF file that would cause flash-plugin to crash.

upgrades Flash Player to version 10.1.53.64.
