Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player might allow remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service.

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   < 10.3.183.10           >= 10.3.183.10

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

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

Impact
======

By enticing a user to open a specially crafted SWF file a remote
attacker could cause a Denial of Service or the execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the application.

Workaround

Resolution
==========

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