Reference: http://partners.immunityinc.com/movies/VulnDisco-Flash0day-v2.mov

Unspecified vulnerability in Adobe Flash Player on Windows
and Mac OS X allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a
crafted SWF file, as demonstrated by the first of two vulnerabilities
exploited by the Intevydis vd_adobe_fp module in VulnDisco Step Ahead
(SA).  NOTE: as of 20111207, this disclosure has no actionable
information. However, because the module author is a reliable
researcher, the issue is being assigned a CVE identifier for tracking

NOTE: it is unclear whether or not Linux is also affected by this flaw.

We do not currently plan to fix this issue due to the lack of further
information about the flaw and its impact. If more information becomes
available at a future date, we may revisit the issue.
