3. Description:

Wireshark is a program for monitoring network traffic. Wireshark was
previously known as Ethereal.

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in the Wireshark SigComp
Universal Decompressor Virtual Machine (UDVM) dissector. If Wireshark read
a malformed packet off a network or opened a malicious dump file, it could
crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark.
(CVE-2010-2287, CVE-2010-2995)

Several denial of service flaws were found in Wireshark. Wireshark could
crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off a network, or
opened a malicious dump file. (CVE-2010-1455, CVE-2010-2283, CVE-2010-2284,
CVE-2010-2286)

Users of Wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
Wireshark version 1.0.15, and resolve these issues. All running instances
of Wireshark must be restarted for the update to take effect.

An updated Adobe Flash Player package that fixes multiple security issues
is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 Extras.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,

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 page APSB10-16, 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-2010-0209,
CVE-2010-2213, CVE-2010-2214, CVE-2010-2216)

A clickjacking flaw was discovered in flash-plugin. A specially-crafted SWF
file could trick a user into unintentionally or mistakenly clicking a link
or a dialog. (CVE-2010-2215)

All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which
upgrades Flash Player to version 9.0.280.0.
