Version Summary:Adobe has re-released a security bulletin and patches to address the multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player.
 

Description
 
Adobe Flash Player contains vulnerabilities that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (DoS) condition on a targeted system.

This update corrects a buffer overflow vulnerability that could lead to arbitrary code execution or cause the affected software to terminate unexpectedly. The update also addresses a memory corruption vulnerability that is due to an error when handling exceptional conditions and could lead to arbitrary code execution on the system.

An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code or cause a DoS condition on the targeted system. To exploit these vulnerabilities, the attacker may provide a malicious file containing crafted Flash content to the user and persuade the user to open or execute the file by using misleading language or instructions.

  • Adobe Flash Player for Windows and Macintosh versions 11.5.502.146 and prior
  • Adobe Flash Player for Linux versions 11.2.202.261 and prior
