Description

An update for flash-plugin is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Supplementary and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Supplementary.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Critical. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The flash-plugin package contains a Mozilla Firefox compatible Adobe Flash Player web browser plug-in.

Security Fix(es) :

* This update fixes multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player.
