Insight

Insight

The following package is affected: linux-flashplugin CVE-2007-6243 Adobe Flash Player 9.x up to 9.0.48.0, 8.x up to 8.0.35.0, and 7.x up to 7.0.70.0 does not sufficiently restrict the interpretation and usage of cross-domain policy files, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct cross-domain and cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. CVE-2008-3873 The System.setClipboard method in ActionScript in Adobe Flash Player 9.0.124.0 and earlier allows remote attackers to populate the clipboard with a URL that is difficult to delete and does not require user interaction to populate the clipboard, as exploited in the wild in August 2008. CVE-2007-4324 ActionScript 3 (AS3) in Adobe Flash Player 9.0.47.0, and other versions and other 9.0.124.0 and earlier versions, allows remote attackers to bypass the Security Sandbox Model, obtain sensitive information, and port scan arbitrary hosts via a Flash (SWF) movie that specifies a connection to make, then uses timing discrepancies from the SecurityErrorEvent error to determine whether a port is open or not. NOTE: 9.0.115.0 introduces support for a workaround, but does not fix the vulnerability. CVE-2008-4401 ActionScript in Adobe Flash Player 9.0.124.0 and earlier does not require user interaction in conjunction with (1) the FileReference.browse operation in the FileReference upload API or (2) the FileReference.download operation in the FileReference download API, which allows remote attackers to create a browse dialog box, and possibly have unspecified other impact, via an SWF file. CVE-2008-4503 The Settings Manager in Adobe Flash Player 9.0.124.0 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause victims to unknowingly click on a link or dialog via access control dialogs disguised as normal graphical elements, as demonstrated by hijacking the camera or microphone, and related to 'clickjacking.'
