Adobe Flash Player is a closed-source playback software for Flash SWF files. Adobe Reader is a closed-source PDF reader that plays Flash content as well.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Adobe Flash Player:
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF file or web site 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.
All Adobe Flash Player users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-plugins/adobe-flash-10.0.32.18"
All Adobe Reader users should upgrade to the latest version:
