Flash Player has been pushed to cauldron nonfree/release and to mga2 nonfree/updates_testing.

Adobe Flash Player contains a fix to a critical security
vulnerability found in earlier versions. This vulnerability could cause a
crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.

This update resolves a buffer overflow vulnerability that could lead to code execution (CVE-2013-0630).


Updated Flash Player packages are in mga2
nonfree/updates_testing as flash-player-plugin (i586 and x86_64) and
flash-player-plugin-kde (i586 and x86_64).

Suggested testing procedure:
Package installs and Flash works.
