3. Problem description:

The flash-plugin package contains a Mozilla-compatible Macromedia Flash

Security issues were discovered in the Macromedia Flash Player. It may
be possible to execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine if the victim

Users of Macromedia Flash Player should upgrade to this updated package,
which contains version 7.0.64 and is not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:
