containing the specially-crafted SWF content. (CVE-2011-2426,
CVE-2011-2427, CVE-2011-2428, CVE-2011-2430)

A flaw in flash-plugin could allow an attacker to conduct cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks if a victim were tricked into visiting a
specially-crafted web page. (CVE-2011-2444)

This update also fixes an information disclosure flaw in flash-plugin.
(CVE-2011-2429)
