Security News: New Adobe Flash found vulnerability

Well this new security flaw isn’t quite as dire, but it is something that you need to be aware of and act on immediately.

The good news is that unlike that last major security hole, Adobe has already patched the problems and made an update available for download.

Before we go any further, we need to be perfectly clear: this is a very serious security flaw. According to Adobe, the issues in question are “critical vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.” In other words, hackers can use the aforementioned flaws to break into your computer, take control of it, and even steal your private data.

No one wants that, and Adobe’s latest update addresses 23 security holes, with the severe ones noted above among them.

Most interestingly, the security bulletin issued by Adobe states that the issues at hand could potentially impact Windows, OS X, Linux, iOS, Android and Chrome OS. As such, the company has stated that all users should update their devices immediately.

Here are Adobe’s notes on how to update each different platform, with several of the required links included:

  • Get Flash Player 21.0.0.182 for Windows and Mac, IE, Safari, Mozilla, Chrome, Opera and Netscape.

Unix has always made it possible to write powerful scripts. Wine makes it possible to call Windows applications from scripts that can also leverage the Unix environment to its full extent.

Wine makes it possible to access Windows applications remotely, even if they are a few thousand miles away.
