    3. Description:
    
    The flash-plugin package contains a Mozilla Firefox compatible Adobe Flash
    Player web browser plug-in.
    
    This update fixes two vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player. These
    vulnerabilities are detailed in the Adobe Security Bulletin APSB15-18
    listed in the References section.
    
    Two 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-2015-5122, CVE-2015-5123)
    
    All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which
    upgrades Flash Player to version 11.2.202.491.
