New Adobe Flash Attack -Fix is out

Another attack on Flash has been announced by Adobe.

Adobe - Security Advisories: APSA10-03 - Security Advisory for Flash Player

May be fixed the week of Sept 27.
I have just stated using a FF addon call QuickJava which has buttons on the Status Bar to disable/enable flash and others on the go.

Adobe Warns of Attacks on New Flash Flaw

Quote:

Adobe Systems Inc. warned Monday that attackers are exploiting a previously unknown security hole in its Flash Player, multimedia software that is installed on most computers.

Adobe said a critical vulnerability exists in Adobe Flash Player versions 10.1.82.76 and earlier, for Windows, Mac, Linux, Solaris, UNIX and Android operating systems. In a security advisory, Adobe warned that the flaw could cause Flash to crash and potentially allow an attacker to seize complete control over an affected system.

Worse still, there are reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild against Adobe Flash Player. Adobe’s advisory states that while the latest versions of Adobe Acrobat and Reader also contain the vulnerable Flash components, the company is not aware of attacks against the Flash flaw in those programs.

That last bit may be of little comfort to Adobe Acrobat and Reader users: Last week, Adobe issued a similar advisory warning that hackers were attacking an as-yet unpatched critical flaw in both of those programs.

Thank you....I added the add on.

Have you ever thought how bored hackers would be without Adobe around?

2-3 weeks for a fix for a known vulnerability in the wild. That's not so nice.

I won't be playing my Flash games for a while.
I dumped Adobe Reader already for FoxIt.
It just didn't make sense to have that big program to read a .pdf.

Seemed to make as much sense as to install MS Office to read a Notepad document.

Thanks for the info update.

Yeah, I switched over to FoxIt about 3 years ago and have never looked back. Reader is just too big, too much to install, too long to start up, etc.
