Synopsis
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player, the worst of which
might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.

Background
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

The Adobe Flash Player is a renderer for the SWF file format, which is
commonly used to provide interactive websites.

Affected packages
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Adobe Flash Player.
Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted SWF
file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to bypass intended access
restrictions, bypass cross-domain policy, inject arbitrary web script,
or obtain sensitive information.

Workaround
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

All Adobe Flash Player users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=3Dwww-plugins/adobe-flash-11.2.202.228"
