Adobe patches Flash Player, again

Adobe Flash Player updatedIn what seems to be almost as regular as the sun rising, Adobe yesterday announced yet another flaw in their Flash Player software.

This latest threat appears almost identical to last month’s flaw which was being taken advantage of by way of a Flash (.swf) file embedded in a Microsoft Word (.doc) file spread through email.

AFFECTED SOFTWARE VERSIONS

  • Adobe Flash Player 10.2.159.1 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris operating systems
  • Adobe Flash Player 10.2.154.28 and earlier versions for Chrome users
  • Adobe Flash Player 10.2.157.51 and earlier versions for Android

Adobe recommends users of any of the above Flash versions to update immediately. Whether you’re on Chrome, IE, Opera or Firefox the version you want installed is 10,3,181,14. Head on over to Adobe’s About Flash Player page to make sure you’re up to date.

As always don’t forget about Mozilla’s handy plugin check page, that examines which plugins you have installed and lets you know of any available upgrades.
