Affects: fedora-all [bug 1899247]

Comment 3 Tomas Hoger 2020-11-20 10:12:34 UTC
This is actually an Adobe Flash flaw, covered by the Adobe Security Bulletin APSB19-30:


Same Origin Policy Bypass 	Information Disclosure  	Important 	CVE-2019-8075

This CVE was not listed in the Adobe bulletin at the time it was published, but - according to the Revisions information in the bulletin - was only added more than 3 months later.  The update for flash-plugin packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Supplementary which provided fixed version was released in Jun 2019 as RHSA-2019:1476:


The versions of the Chromium browser as included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Supplementary or Fedora do not include Adobe Flash and hence can not be affected by this issue.  This probably got fixed in Chrome before the version 87.0.4280.66 when the bundled Flash version was updated to a fixed Adobe version, it only did not get acknowledged in any Chrome release announcement.
