Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified, the worst of which allow arbitrary code execution on a user's system via a malicious Flash file.
The Adobe Flash Player is a renderer for the popular SWF file format, which is commonly used to provide interactive websites, digital experiences and mobile content.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file (usually in a web browser), possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the Adobe Flash Player. The attacker could also cause a user's machine to establish TCP sessions with arbitrary hosts, bypass the Security Sandbox Model, obtain sensitive information, port scan arbitrary hosts, or conduct cross-site-scripting attacks.
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 ">=net-www/netscape-flash-220.127.116.11"
Please be advised that unaffected packages of the Adobe Flash Player have known problems when used from within the Konqueror and Opera browsers.
