A flaw was found in the way flash-plugin displayed certain SWF
content. An attacker could use this flaw 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
specially crafted SWF content. (CVE-2012-0768)
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-2012-0769)
