Adobe Flash Player is a closed-source playback software for Flash SWF
files. Adobe Reader is a closed-source PDF reader that plays Flash
content as well.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Adobe Flash Player:
<li>lakehu of Tencent Security Center reported an unspecified
memory corruption vulnerability (CVE-2009-1862).</li>
<li>Mike Wroe
reported an unspecified vulnerability, related to "privilege
escalation" (CVE-2009-1863).</li>
<li>An anonymous researcher through
iDefense reported an unspecified heap-based buffer overflow
<li>Chen Chen of Venustech reported an
unspecified "null pointer vulnerability" (CVE-2009-1865).</li>
Chen of Venustech reported an unspecified stack-based buffer overflow
<li>Joran Benker reported that Adobe Flash Player
facilitates "clickjacking" attacks (CVE-2009-1867).</li>
<li>Jun Mao of
iDefense reported a heap-based buffer overflow, related to URL parsing
<li>Roee Hay of IBM Rational Application Security
reported an unspecified integer overflow (CVE-2009-1869).</li>
<li>Gareth Heyes and Microsoft Vulnerability Research reported that the
sandbox in Adobe Flash Player allows for information disclosure, when
"SWFs are saved to the hard drive" (CVE-2009-1870).</li>
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF
file or web site containing Adobe Flash (SWF) contents, possibly
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application, or a Denial of Service (application
crash). Furthermore, a remote attacker could trick a user into clicking
a button on a dialog by supplying a specially crafted SWF file and
disclose sensitive information by exploiting a sandbox issue.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Adobe Flash Player users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-plugins/adobe-flash-;</code>
All Adobe Reader users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-text/acroread-9.1.3&quot;</code>
