Adobe Systems last week warned users of an exploit that hackers had been using to target the company’s Flash Player software. In its warning, Adobe promised an update by next week.
But for a flaw that is now deemed critical, Adobe decided to speed up the release, and has now offered a fix for the flaw, which potentially could be exploited to crash or take control over users’ systems. eSecurity Planet has the details on Adobe’s fix for the Flash Player vulnerability.
Adobe Systems today released a fix for what it described as a “critical” hole that hackers have successfully exploited in its Flash Player software.
In a security advisory, Adobe (NASDAQ: ADBE) officials said the vulnerability could allow attackers to take control of computers and mobile devices running Flash Player 10.1.82.76 and earlier versions for Windows, Mac, Android, Solaris and Linux.
