SUSE SLED11 Security Update : flash-player (SUSE-SU-2015:1258-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

flash-player was updated to fix two security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2015-5123: Use-after-free vulnerability in the
BitmapData class in the ActionScript 3 (AS3)
implementation in Adobe Flash Player allowed remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
service (memory corruption) via crafted Flash content
that overrides a valueOf function (bsc#937752).

- CVE-2015-5122: Use-after-free vulnerability in the
DisplayObject class in the ActionScript 3 (AS3)
implementation in Adobe Flash Player allowed remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
service (memory corruption) via crafted Flash content
that leverages improper handling of the opaqueBackground
property (bsc#937752).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
