SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200908-04 (Adobe products: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Adobe Flash Player:
lakehu of Tencent Security Center reported an unspecified memory corruption vulnerability (CVE-2009-1862).
Mike Wroe reported an unspecified vulnerability, related to 'privilege escalation' (CVE-2009-1863).
An anonymous researcher through iDefense reported an unspecified heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-1864).
Chen Chen of Venustech reported an unspecified 'NULL pointer vulnerability' (CVE-2009-1865).
Chen Chen of Venustech reported an unspecified stack-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-1866).
Joran Benker reported that Adobe Flash Player facilitates 'clickjacking' attacks (CVE-2009-1867).
Jun Mao of iDefense reported a heap-based buffer overflow, related to URL parsing (CVE-2009-1868).
Roee Hay of IBM Rational Application Security reported an unspecified integer overflow (CVE-2009-1869).
Gareth Heyes and Microsoft Vulnerability Research reported that the sandbox in Adobe Flash Player allows for information disclosure, when 'SWFs are saved to the hard drive' (CVE-2009-1870).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF file or website containing Adobe Flash (SWF) contents, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application, or a Denial of Service (application crash). Furthermore, a remote attacker could trick a user into clicking a button on a dialog by supplying a specially crafted SWF file and disclose sensitive information by exploiting a sandbox issue.
There is no known workaround at this time.
