From ${URL} :

Adobe has released Flash Player 11.2.202.400 for Linux to correct the following flaws:

* These updates resolve memory leakage vulnerabilities that could be used to bypass memory address 
randomization (CVE-2014-0540, CVE-2014-0542, CVE-2014-0543, CVE-2014-0544, CVE-2014-0545).

* These updates resolve a security bypass vulnerability (CVE-2014-0541).

* These updates resolve a use-after-free vulnerability that could lead to code execution 
(CVE-2014-0538).

CVE-2014-0538 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2014-0538):
  Use-after-free vulnerability in Adobe Flash Player before 13.0.0.241 and
  14.x before 14.0.0.176 on Windows and OS X and before 11.2.202.400 on Linux,
  Adobe AIR before 14.0.0.178 on Windows and OS X and before 14.0.0.179 on
  Android, Adobe AIR SDK before 14.0.0.178, and Adobe AIR SDK & Compiler
  before 14.0.0.178 allows attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified
  vectors.
