GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200303-9
- - ---------------------------------------------------------------------

          PACKAGE : netscape-flash
          SUMMARY : buffer overflow
             DATE : 2003-03-09 01:56 UTC
          EXPLOIT : remote
VERSIONS AFFECTED : <6.0.79
    FIXED VERSION : =>6.0.79
              CVE : 

- - ---------------------------------------------------------------------

- From advisory:
"The cumulative security patch is available today and addresses the 
potential for exploits surrounding buffer overflows (read/write) and 
sandbox integrity within the player, which might allow malicious users 
to gain access to a user's computer. The possibility of running native 
code on a users machine is a theoretical exploit, and extremely 
difficult to execute in practice. There are no known examples of 
running such native code from Macromedia Flash movies; however, even 
though this issue is difficult and theoretical in nature only, we 
are encouraging users to upgrade."

Read the full advisory at:
http://www.macromedia.com/v1/handlers/index.cfm?ID=23821

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-www/netscape-flash upgrade to netscape-flash-6.0.79 as follows:

emerge sync
emerge netscape-flash
emerge clean
