Multiple security 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 specially-crafted SWF content. (CVE-2010-0209,
CVE-2010-2213, CVE-2010-2214, CVE-2010-2216)
A clickjacking flaw was discovered in flash-plugin. A specially-crafted SWF
file could trick a user into unintentionally or mistakenly clicking a link
or a dialog. (CVE-2010-2215)
All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which
upgrades Flash Player to version 10.1.82.76.
