RHSA-2007:1126: flash-plugin security update (Critical)  

The flash-plugin package contains a Firefox-compatible Adobe Flash Player Web browser plug-in.
Several input validation flaws were found in the way Flash Player displays certain content. It may be possible to execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine, if the victim opens a malicious Adobe Flash file. (CVE-2007-4768, CVE-2007-6242, CVE-2007-6246)
A flaw was found in the way Flash Player handled the asfunction: protocol. Malformed SWF files could perform a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2007-6244)
A flaw was found in the way Flash Player modified HTTP request headers. Malicious content could allow Flash Player to conduct a HTTP response splitting attack. (CVE-2007-6245)
A flaw was found in the way Flash Player processes certain SWF content. A malicious SWF file could allow a remote attacker to conduct a port scanning attack from the client's machine. (CVE-2007-4324)
A flaw was found in the way Flash Player establishes TCP sessions. A remote attacker could use Flash Player to conduct a DNS rebinding attack. (CVE-2007-5275)
Users of Adobe Flash Player are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains version 9.0.115.0 and resolves these issues.
