Description Martin Prpič 2015-08-12 02:37:29 EDT
Adobe Security Bulletin APSB15-19 for Adobe Flash Player describes the following issue:

These updates include further hardening to a mitigation introduced in version 18.0.0.209 to defend against vector length corruptions (CVE-2015-5125).

This mitigation is likely not relevant to the Linux version of Adobe Flash Player, and thus the hardening does not apply to the Linux version as well.
