Description

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

This update fixes three vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player. These vulnerabilities are detailed in the Adobe Security bulletin APSB12-27, 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-2012-5676, CVE-2012-5677, CVE-2012-5678)

All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which upgrades Flash Player to version 11.2.202.258.
