Adobe Goes Out-of-Band to Fix Flash, Acrobat
Page 1 of 1
One week after first disclosing that its Adobe Reader, Acrobat and Flash Player were at risk, Adobe has patched its platforms.
The flaw could have enabled an attacker to create a malicious .swf Flash file which could have allowed an attacker to take control of a user's system. The new Adobe Flash Player 10.2.153.1 which is now available from Adobe fixes the flaw.
While standalone Adobe Flash Player users have had to wait a week for a fix from Adobe, Google's Chrome users have been protected since last week.
