Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200908-04
(Adobe products: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Adobe Flash Player:
lakehu of Tencent Security Center reported an unspecified
memory corruption vulnerability (CVE-2009-1862).
Mike Wroe
reported an unspecified vulnerability, related to 'privilege
escalation' (CVE-2009-1863).

Chen of Venustech reported an unspecified stack-based buffer overflow
(CVE-2009-1866).
Joran Benker reported that Adobe Flash Player
facilitates 'clickjacking' attacks (CVE-2009-1867).
Jun Mao of
iDefense reported a heap-based buffer overflow, related to URL parsing
(CVE-2009-1868).
Roee Hay of IBM Rational Application Security
reported an unspecified integer overflow (CVE-2009-1869).
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).

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF
file or website 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.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
