Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Adobe Flash Player, the
worst of which could result in execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

The Adobe Flash Player is a renderer for the SWF file format, which is
commonly used to provide interactive websites.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-plugins/adobe-flash   < 11.2.202.310         >= 11.2.202.310

Description
===========

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities have been discovered in Adobe
Flash Player. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for
details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open specially crafted SWF
content, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to bypass access
restrictions.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Adobe Flash Player users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=www-plugins/adobe-flash-11.2.202.310"
