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 bypass security protections. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system.|
A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.
Several memory corruption errors may occur [CVE-2015-0347, CVE-2015-0350, CVE-2015-0352, CVE-2015-0353, CVE-2015-0354, CVE-2015-0355, CVE-2015-0360, CVE-2015-3038, CVE-2015-3041, CVE-2015-3042, CVE-2015-3043].
One of these vulnerabilities [CVE-2015-3043] is being actively exploited.
A type confusion error may occur [CVE-2015-0356].
A buffer overflow may occur [CVE-2015-0348].
Several use-after-free memory errors may occur [CVE-2015-0349, CVE-2015-0351, CVE-2015-0358, CVE-2015-3039].
Two double-free memory errors may occur [CVE-2015-0346, CVE-2015-0359].
Two memory leaks can be exploited to bypass address space layout randomization (ASLR) [CVE-2015-0357, CVE-2015-3040].
A user can bypass security protections to obtain potentially sensitive information [CVE-2015-3044].

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 in the Adobe Security Bulletin APSB15-06
listed in the References section.
Multiple 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 malicious SWF
content. (CVE-2015-0346, CVE-2015-0347, CVE-2015-0348, CVE-2015-0349,
CVE-2015-0350, CVE-2015-0351, CVE-2015-0352, CVE-2015-0353, CVE-2015-0354,
CVE-2015-0355, CVE-2015-0356, CVE-2015-0358, CVE-2015-0359, CVE-2015-0360,
CVE-2015-3038, CVE-2015-3039, CVE-2015-3041, CVE-2015-3042, CVE-2015-3043)
A security bypass flaw was found in flash-plugin that could lead to the
disclosure of sensitive information. (CVE-2015-3044)
Two memory information leak flaws were found in flash-plugin that could
allow an attacker to potentially bypass ASLR (Address Space Layout
Randomization) protection, and make it easier to exploit other flaws.
All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which
upgrades Flash Player to version 188.8.131.527.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
