Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

The Adobe Flash Player was updated to version 7.0.70.0 for Novell
Linux Desktop 9 and to version 9.0.48.0 on SUSE Linux Enterprise
Desktop 10 to fix several security problems :

- An input validation error has been identified in Flash
Player 9.0.45.0 and earlier versions that could lead to
the potential execution of arbitrary code. This
vulnerability could be accessed through content
delivered from a remote location via the user's web
browser, email client, or other applications that
include or reference the Flash Player. (CVE-2007-3456)

- An issue with insufficient validation of the HTTP
Referer has been identified in Flash Player 8.0.34.0 and
earlier. This issue does not affect Flash Player 9. This
issue could potentially aid an attacker in executing a
cross-site request forgery attack. (CVE-2007-3457)

- The Linux and Solaris updates for Flash Player 7
(7.0.70.0) address the issues with Flash Player and the
Opera and Konqueror browsers described in Security
Advisory APSA07-03. These issues do not impact Flash
Player 9 on Linux or Solaris. (CVE-2007-2022)

The affected webbrowsers Opera and konqueror have already been fixed
