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

This update fixes multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player. These
vulnerabilities are detailed in the Adobe Security Bulletin APSB14-17,
listed in the References section.

Multiple flaws were found in the way flash-plugin displayed certain SWF
content. An attacker could use these flaws to create a specially crafted
SWF file that would cause flash-plugin to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code when the victim loaded a page containing the malicious SWF
content. (CVE-2014-0537, CVE-2014-0539)

This update also fixes a flaw that would lead to Cross-Site Request Forgery
(CSRF) attacks. (CVE-2014-4671)

All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which
upgrades Flash Player to version 11.2.202.394.
