Adobe Warns Of Critical Flash Flaw, Drive by Downloads
Adobe on Tuesday warned that multiple critical vulnerabilities in its Flash media player put users at risk, possibly from drive-by downloads, and urged all to update immediately to the patched 188.8.131.52 edition.
Microsoft also issued a security advisory Tuesday to tell customers of its Windows XP, Windows 98, and Windows Millennium operating systems -- all of which are bundled with a flawed edition of Flash -- to also update their players.
Security vendors quickly chimed in Wednesday. Danish vulnerability tracker Secunia, for example, labeled the threat as "highly critical," its second-highest warning rating. CRN | Security, Software Patches | Adobe Warns of Critical Flash Flaw, Drive-by Downloads
