The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated Adobe Flash Player package that fixes several security
issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 Extras.
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.
Multiple input validation flaws were found in the way Flash Player
displayed certain SWF (Shockwave Flash) content. An attacker could use
these flaws to create a specially crafted SWF file that could cause
flash-plugin to crash, or, possibly, execute arbitrary code when the
victim loaded a page containing the specially crafted SWF content.
All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package,
which upgrades Flash Player to version 188.8.131.52.
