Synopsis
========

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

Background
==========

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

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-plugins/adobe-flash   < 11.2.202.228         >= 11.2.202.228

Description
===========

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

Impact
======

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
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

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

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