Version Summary:Red Hat has released a security advisory and updated packages to address the multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player and AIR.
 

Description
 
Multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player and AIR could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a targeted system.

This update resolves a stack overflow vulnerability, a memory leak vulnerability, and a double free vulnerability. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by persuading a user to visit a malicious web page that contains crafted Flash content. If successful, the attacker could execute arbitrary code on the system, which could result in a complete system compromise.

  • Adobe Flash Player for Windows and Macintosh versions 12.0.0.44 and prior
  • Adobe Flash Player for Linux versions 11.2.202.336 and prior
  • Adobe AIR for Android versions 4.0.0.1390  and prior
