Description Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-14 03:28:21 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #337204 +++

From $URL:

A critical  vulnerability exists in Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Solaris, and Adobe Flash Player for Android. This vulnerability also affects Adobe Reader 9.3.4 for Windows, Macintosh and UNIX, and Adobe Acrobat 9.3.4 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh. This vulnerability (CVE-2010-2884) could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. There are reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild against Adobe Flash Player on Windows.

I am creating two bugs--one for www-plugins/adobe-flash, and one for app-text/acroread--so they can be stablized separately since Adobe is planning to release fixed software at different times.
