Adobe’s Flash has been in the news quite a bit recently due to some security flaws, yesterday we heard that Mozilla had blocked Flash in Firefox and now Adobe has released an update to flash.
According to Adobe, the latest update patches the Flash security flaws, so if you are using an older version of the software, it is a good idea to grab the latest update.
We released an update to Flash Player this morning, and are proactively pushing the update out to users. We are also working with browser vendors to distribute the updated player.
We would like to thank Dhanesh Kizhakkinan of FireEye and Peter Pi of TrendMicro and slipstream/RoL for reporting the issues and working with us to help us quickly address them.
Flash Player is one of the most ubiquitous and widely distributed pieces of software in the world, and as such, is a target of malicious hackers. We are actively working to improve Flash Player security, and as we did in this case, will work to quickly address issues when they are discovered.
You can find out more details about the software update which is designed to fix the latest Flash security flaws at the link below.
