An updated Adobe Flash Player package that fixes multiple security

Multiple security flaws were found in the way flash-plugin displayed

potentially, execute arbitrary code when the victim loaded a page
containing the specially crafted SWF content. (CVE-2010-0209,
CVE-2010-2213, CVE-2010-2214, CVE-2010-2216)

A clickjacking flaw was discovered in flash-plugin. A specially
crafted SWF file could trick a user into unintentionally or mistakenly
clicking a link or a dialog. (CVE-2010-2215)
