Details

An updated Adobe Flash Player package that fixes two security issues is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Supplementary.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

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 summarized on the Adobe Security Advisory APSB10-06

containing specially-crafted SWF content, it could cause Flash Player to
perform unauthorized cross-domain requests, leading to the disclosure of
sensitive data. (CVE-2010-0186, CVE-2010-0187)

All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which
upgrades Flash Player to version 10.0.45.2.
