Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Adobe Flash Player. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create specially crafted Flash content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow or memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

Vitaliy Toropov (via iDefense), an Anonymous Researcher (via iDefense), Will Dormann of CERT, Bo Qu of Palo Alto Networks, Simon Raner of ACROS Security, Marc Schoenefeld of Red Hat Security Response Team, an anonymous reporter (via TippingPoint), and Tavis Ormandy of the Google Security Team reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix.

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-2011-0558,
