Description:   Several 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 obtain potentially sensitive information. Microsoft Internet Explorer is affected.

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error [CVE-2012-4163, CVE-2012-4164, CVE-2012-4165, CVE-2012-4166] or integer overflow [CVE-2012-4167] and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A remote user can exploit a cross-domain flaw to obtain information from a different domain [CVE-2012-4168].

A user can trigger a logic error involving multiple dialogs in Firefox to cause a crash [CVE-2012-4171].

Xu Liu of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs, Will Dormann of CERT, Honggang Ren of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs, Alexander Gavrun (via iDefense's Vulnerability Contributor Program), Claudio Santambrogio of Opera Software ASA, and Attila Suszter 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.
