Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a browser plugin that is affected by
multiple HTTP header injection issues.

Description :

According to its version number, the instance of Flash Player on the
remote Windows host contains two ways for a remote attacker to perform
arbitrary HTTP requests while controlling most of the HTTP headers. A
remote attacker may be able to leverage these issues to conduct
cross-site request forgery attacks against a user who visits a
malicious website.
