Adobe provided updates to Adobe Flash Player, ColdFusion, and Adobe Flash Media Server today to address critical and important severity security issues. Oddly, these seem to have come out of the blue. I’m usually able to stay on top of these things but I was caught off-guard by this update. So here I am, passing along the info so that more people update to protect their computers.
The Adobe Product Security Incident Response Team Blog is what alerted me to the update. The article provides links to the updates related security bulletins. Adobe Flash’s Security Bulletin, APSB10-16, informs us the current version of Flash Player is 10.1.82.76 and addresses five remote code execution vulnerabilities and a vector for a click-jacking attack.
You can download the latest version of Adobe Flash without McAfee scans and Adobe DLM junk from the links on my previous article: Download the Latest Adobe Flash For Firefox and IE Without any Extras.
Meanwhile, Adobe Reader and Acrobat updates are still scheduled for the week of August 16th.
