Description

An updated Adobe Flash Player package that fixes a security issue is now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The flash-plugin package contains a Firefox-compatible Adobe Flash Player browser plug-in.

A flaw was found in the way the Adobe Flash Player generates HTTP requests. It was possible for a malicious Adobe Flash file to modify the HTTP header of the client request, which could be leveraged to exploit certain HTTP proxy and web server flaws. (CVE-2006-5330)

Users of Adobe Flash Player should upgrade to this updated package, which contains version 7.0.69 and is not vulnerable to this issue.
