The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated Adobe Flash Player package that fixes multiple 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 Mozilla Firefox compatible Adobe
Flash Player web browser plug-in.
Multiple security flaws were found in the way Flash Player displayed
certain SWF content. An attacker could use these flaws to create a
specially crafted SWF file that would cause flash-plugin to crash or,
possibly, execute arbitrary code when the victim loaded a page
containing the specially crafted SWF content. (CVE-2009-1862,
CVE-2009-1863, CVE-2009-1864, CVE-2009-1865, CVE-2009-1866,
A clickjacking flaw was discovered in Flash Player. A
specially crafted SWF file could trick a user into unintentionally or
mistakenly clicking a link or a dialog. (CVE-2009-1867)
A flaw was found in the Flash Player local sandbox. A
specially crafted SWF file could cause information disclosure when it
was saved to the hard drive. (CVE-2009-1870)
All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package,
which upgrades Flash Player to version 18.104.22.168.
