Adobe issues Flash plug-in, player ‘critical’ updates

‘Priority 1’ issue affects PC, Mac, Android

 

A “critical” security issue that can cause the Flash plug-in to crash and allow a malicious program potential access to the system is addressed in the latest Adobe security update for both the Flash player standalone program for CS users and web browser plug-in for Macs, Windows and Android systems. Users are strongly advised to upgrade to version 11.2.202.235 on Macs and Windows, and v11.1.111.8 on Android (version 11.1.115.9 for Android 4.0).

The vulnerability is referred to obliquely in Adobe’s Security Bulletin accompanying the release, but the update is available either through the program’s own auto-update mechanism or by visiting the Flash Player update page. Adobe reports that instances of the malicious takeover technique have been seen “in the wild” exploiting Internet Explorer, but the vulnerability could affect any other of the mentioned platforms.
