Description

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

Multiple security flaws were found in the way Flash Player displayed certain SWF content. An attacker could use these flaws to create a specially-crafted SWF file that would cause flash-plugin to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code when the victim loaded a page containing the specially-crafted SWF content. (CVE-2009-3794, CVE-2009-3796, CVE-2009-3798, CVE-2009-3799, CVE-2009-3800)

All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which upgrades Flash Player to version 9.0.260.0.
