Adobe Readies Major Flash Fix

Adobe is preparing fixes for its popular media products, the PDF Reader, Acrobat, and Flash, all of which have been found to contain serious security holes. The fixes should come later this month, reports eSecurity Planet.


Adobe Systems is promising to deliver a patch by Thursday that will resolve an exploit in its Flash Player software for Web browsers that causes the plug-in to crash and give hackers access and control of infected PCs.

Adobe officials said in a security advisory that the affected software versions are 10.0.45.2, 9.0.262 and earlier versions of the Flash plug-in.

When it ships later this week, the patch for Flash Player will support Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. The company will also release updates to resolve similar security issues for Adobe Reader and Acrobat by June 29, it said.
