Adobe Out Of Band Security Bulletin: APSB11-26
Seen on the Adobe Security Bulletins page located here: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/
Critical vulnerabilities have been identified in Adobe Flash Player 10.3.183.7 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris, and Adobe Flash Player 10.3.186.6 and earlier versions for Android. These vulnerabilities could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.
There are reports that one of these vulnerabilities (CVE-2011-2444) is being exploited in the wild in active targeted attacks designed to trick the user into clicking on a malicious link delivered in an email message. This universal cross-site scripting issue could be used to take actions on a user’s behalf on any website or webmail provider if the user visits a malicious website.
Adobe recommends users of Adobe Flash Player 10.3.183.7 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris update to Adobe Flash Player 10.3.183.10. Users of Adobe Flash Player for Android 10.3.186.6 and earlier versions should update to Adobe Flash Player for Android 10.3.186.7.
I love the fact that Flash player has been a prime target over the last several months. Including having to update the software twice in one month. Personally, if I don’t have to use Flash I don’t install it. At home, I personally don’t have flash installed on any of my devices (Linux, MAC OS, iOS) and I’ve got no problems whatsoever getting around or browsing the web.
Anywho, head over, take a look and for Pete’s sake, please update your Flash players. While you’re at it, make sure all of your other Adobe products are updated as well.
