security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

3. Description:

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 APSB14-14,
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-2014-0510, CVE-2014-0517, CVE-2014-0518, CVE-2014-0519,
CVE-2014-0520)

A flaw in flash-plugin could allow an attacker to bypass the same-origin
policy. (CVE-2014-0516)

All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which
upgrades Flash Player to version 11.2.202.359.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
