Adobe Issues Patch as Hackers Attack Flash Yet Again
This is getting out of hand. For the second time this month, Adobe has issued an urgent warning telling users of its Flash plug-in to download a patch as soon as possible to avoid dangerous attacks by hackers.
Tuesday’s surprise update patches holes “that could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system,” Adobe said in a security bulletin. Although anyone who runs flash on a PC or Mac should install the patch as soon as possible, it’s even more urgent to do so if you’re using Mozilla’s Firefox browser, Adobe said.
