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, detailed in the Adobe Security Bulletin APSB15-27 listed in the References section, could allow an attacker to create a specially crafted SWF file that would cause flash-plugin to crash, execute arbitrary code, or disclose sensitive information when the victim loaded a page containing the malicious SWF content. (CVE-2015-7645, CVE-2015-7647, CVE-2015-7648)

All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which upgrades Flash Player to version 11.2.202.540.
