The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated Adobe Flash Player package that fixes a security issue is
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Extras, Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4 Extras, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
The flash-plugin package contains a Firefox-compatible Adobe Flash
Player Web browser plug-in.
A security flaw was found in the way Flash Player displayed certain
SWF (Shockwave Flash) content. This may have made it possible to
execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine, if the victim opened a
malicious Adobe Flash file. (CVE-2008-5499)
All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package,
which upgrades Flash Player to version 10.0.15.3 for users of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 Supplementary, and 188.8.131.52 for users of Red Hat
Enterprise 3 and 4 Extras.
