DISCUSSION:

This advisory addresses several issues in Adobe Flash Player that could result in remote code execution (RCE) within the context of an application that uses Adobe Flash, such as the BlackBerry PlayBook browser.

IMPACT:

Successful exploitation of any of these issues could potentially result in an attacker being able to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application that opens the specially crafted Adobe Flash content. Failed exploitation of any of these issues might result in abnormal or unexpected termination of the application.

SOLUTION:

Vendor recommends Updating to version 2.1.0.1526 or later.
