The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Critical
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,

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-2014-0506, CVE-2014-0507)

A flaw in flash-plugin could allow an attacker to obtain sensitive
information if a victim were tricked into visiting a specially crafted web
page. (CVE-2014-0508)

A flaw in flash-plugin could allow an attacker to conduct cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks if a victim were tricked into visiting a specially
crafted web page. (CVE-2014-0509)
