SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201001-02 (Adobe Flash Player: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Adobe Flash Player:
An anonymous researcher working with the Zero Day Initiative reported that Adobe Flash Player does not properly process JPEG files (CVE-2009-3794).
Jim Cheng of EffectiveUI reported an unspecified data injection vulnerability (CVE-2009-3796).
Bing Liu of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs reported multiple unspecified memory corruption vulnerabilities (CVE-2009-3797, CVE-2009-3798).
Damian Put reported an integer overflow in the Verifier::parseExceptionHandlers() function (CVE-2009-3799).
Will Dormann of CERT reported multiple unspecified Denial of Service vulnerabilities (CVE-2009-3800).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted SWF file, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application, or a Denial of Service via unknown vectors.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Adobe Flash Player users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-plugins/adobe-flash-10.0.42.34'
