Synopsis
=======
Multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player, the worst of which
might allow remote attackers to execute 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

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

Impact

privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to bypass intended access
restrictions, bypass cross-domain policy, inject arbitrary web script,
or obtain sensitive information.
