2. Contributing Factors
These issues can occur in the following releases:
1. These issues can occur in Flash Player 10.0.32.18 and earlier versions for Solaris
2. Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 are not affected by these issues.
3. OpenSolaris distributions may include additional bug fixes above and beyond the build from which it was derived. The base build can be derived as follows:
$ uname -aThe Flash Player shipped with Solaris is a Web Browser plugin, meaning that the Web Browser should be used to determine the version of the Flash Player in use. For example, when using the Mozilla Browser, visit the following URL:
and search for the Flash Player in the list of plugins.
Should the described issues occur, the web browser may crash and potentially create a core dump depending on the system configuration. There are no predictable symptoms that would indicate these issues have been exploited to execute arbitrary code.
For Firefox 2.x and Mozilla 1.7 users, remove the Flash Player from the system.
For Firefox 3.x users, disable Flash Player by doing the following:
Tools -> Add-ons -> Plugins -> ShockWave Flash -> Disable
These issues are addressed in the following releases:
