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 APSB15-19
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-2015-5127, CVE-2015-5128, CVE-2015-5129, CVE-2015-5130,
