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

This update fixes multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player. These vulnerabilities are detailed on the Adobe security page APSB10-16, listed in the References section.

Multiple security flaws were found in the way flash-plugin 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, potentially, execute arbitrary code when the victim loaded a page containing the specially-crafted SWF content. (CVE-2010-0209, CVE-2010-2213, CVE-2010-2214, CVE-2010-2216)

A clickjacking flaw was discovered in flash-plugin. A specially-crafted SWF file could trick a user into unintentionally or mistakenly clicking a link or a dialog. (CVE-2010-2215)

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