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 in the Adobe Security Bulletin APSB15-06 listed in the References section.
Multiple 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 malicious SWF content. (CVE-2015-0346, CVE-2015-0347, CVE-2015-0348, CVE-2015-0349, CVE-2015-0350, CVE-2015-0351, CVE-2015-0352, CVE-2015-0353, CVE-2015-0354, CVE-2015-0355, CVE-2015-0356, CVE-2015-0358, CVE-2015-0359, CVE-2015-0360, CVE-2015-3038, CVE-2015-3039, CVE-2015-3041, CVE-2015-3042, CVE-2015-3043)
A security bypass flaw was found in flash-plugin that could lead to the disclosure of sensitive information. (CVE-2015-3044)
