The Adobe Flash Player is a renderer for the SWF file format, which is
commonly used to provide interactive websites.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Adobe Flash Player:
<ul><li>An anonymous researcher working with the Zero Day
Initiative reported that Adobe Flash Player does not properly process
JPEG files (CVE-2009-3794).</li>
<li>Jim Cheng of EffectiveUI reported
an unspecified data injection vulnerability (CVE-2009-3796).</li>
<li>Bing Liu of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs reported multiple
unspecified memory corruption vulnerabilities (CVE-2009-3797,
<li>Damian Put reported an integer overflow in the
Verifier::parseExceptionHandlers() function (CVE-2009-3799).</li>
<li>Will Dormann of CERT reported multiple unspecified Denial of
Service vulnerabilities (CVE-2009-3800).</li>
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted SWF
file, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running the application, or a Denial of
Service via unknown vectors.
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>
