Multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service.
The Adobe Flash Player is a renderer for the SWF file format, which is commonly used to provide interactive websites.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Adobe Flash Player:
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.
All Adobe Flash Player users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
