    Exclamation ALERT!! Adobe Flash Zero Day Vulnerability


    As Martin030908 reported earlier, there is currently a vulnerability in Adobe Flash that is present on all platforms. Windows seems to be taking the hits right now but it is possible that Android could be a target down the road. For now we suggest disabling flash until a fix is available.

    Adobe has the following to say about a fix.

    Apparently there is a vulnerability within Adobe Flash that affects Android among other OS's.

    Was in beta forever and then they release it with a HUGE vulnerability. Way to go Adobe.

    An Adobe spokesperson contacted me and shared that, "A critical vulnerability exists in Adobe Flash Player 10.1.82.76 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Solaris and Android operating systems.

    In a nutshell, the critical flaw could be exploited to crash the affected system, or may even allow an attacker to gain access and control it to execute additional malicious software. There are reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild against Adobe Flash Player,

    Now the question... uninstall Adobe Flash Player until a fix is issued or keep it?

    Well that version that C/K mentions is not the Market Version so if they have moved past it then great, that is what new versions are for, to work out bugs.

    So the bug's only in 10.1.82.76 and earlier?

    10.1.92.8 is the latest version on Adobe's site, and 10.1.92.10 is what's currently in the Market, so hopefully we're already in the clear.

    Good details.

    Either means the issue is with the later versions or they just happened to find it in the newer ones.... we'll have to wait and see what Adobe issues to fix this.

    If you click on the first link in the OP it says:

    "Adobe Flash Player 10.1.82.76 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Solaris, and Adobe Flash Player 10.1.92.10 for Android"
