The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated Adobe Flash Player package that fixes two security issues
is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 Supplementary.
Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Critical
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each
vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.
The flash-plugin package contains a Mozilla Firefox compatible Adobe
Flash Player web browser plug-in.
This update fixes two vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player. These
vulnerabilities are detailed in the Adobe Security Bulletin APSB15-18
listed in the References section.
Two flaws were found in the way flash-plugin 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,
potentially, execute arbitrary code when the victim loaded a page
containing the malicious SWF content. (CVE-2015-5122, CVE-2015-5123)
All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package,
which upgrades Flash Player to version 184.108.40.2061.
