High Nessus Plugin ID 29785

This flash player update to version fixes several security problems. In the worst case an attacker could potentially have flash-player execute arbitrary code via specially crafted files.
(CVE-2007-4324 / CVE-2007-4768 / CVE-2007-5275 / CVE-2007-6242 / CVE-2007-6243 / CVE-2007-6244 / CVE-2007-6245 / CVE-2007-6246)
