    Many of us are still using Adobe Flash Player.
    Adobe has announced that it has released an emergency security patch to fix a fatal security flaw in the Adobe Flash software.

    Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Flash Player for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. These updates address a vulnerability that could be used to circumvent memory randomization mitigations on the Windows platform.

    Adobe states:
    "Adobe is aware of reports that an exploit for CVE-2015-0310 exists in the wild, which is being used in attacks against older versions of Flash Player. Additionally, we are investigating reports that a separate exploit for Flash Player 16.0.0.287 and earlier also exists in the wild. For the latest information, please refer to the PSIRT blog here."

    If you are using Chrome Browser no worries as Flash Player is built in and Google will automatically patch it.

    Head over to the Adobe Site for OS specific links and more info:
