    It's an example of how linux can be vulnerable through 3rd party software. A good reason to run clam anti-virus, though it doesn't sound like clam would prevent this.

    I don't think RKHunter would detect it either. It's an Exploit that leads to a crash, how the heck you exploit a crashed system is beyond me. I guess it crashes Flash only and the exploit comes through that. How come they never explain exactly what the heck is going on? Just the keywords "Crash, Root, Exploit"....I want details people!
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
