Description

An updated Adobe Flash Player package that fixes three security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 Supplementary.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

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

This update fixes two vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player. These vulnerabilities are detailed in the Adobe Security bulletin APSB13-08, listed in the References section. Specially crafted SWF content could cause flash-plugin to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when a victim loads a page containing the malicious SWF content. (CVE-2013-0504, CVE-2013-0648)

This update also fixes a permissions issue with the Adobe Flash Player Firefox sandbox. (CVE-2013-0643)

All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which upgrades Flash Player to version 11.2.202.273.
