Description

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

Several input validation flaws were found in the way Flash Player displayed certain content. These may have made it possible to execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine, if the victim opened a malicious Adobe Flash file. (CVE-2007-0071, CVE-2007-6019)

A flaw was found in the way Flash Player established TCP sessions to remote hosts. A remote attacker could, consequently, use Flash Player to conduct a DNS rebinding attack. (CVE-2007-5275, CVE-2008-1655)

A flaw was found in the way Flash Player restricted the interpretation and usage of cross-domain policy files. A remote attacker could use Flash Player to conduct cross-domain and cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2007-6243, CVE-2008-1654)

A flaw was found in the way Flash Player interacted with web browsers. An attacker could use malicious content presented by Flash Player to conduct a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2007-6637)

All users of Adobe Flash Player should upgrade to this updated package, which contains Flash Player version 9.0.124.0 and resolves these issues.
