Adobe Patches Critical Vulnerabilities in Shockwave
Adobe joined Microsoft in releasing security patches today, sending out a fix for its Shockwave Player. The patch repairs critical vulnerabilities in the platform that could allow an attacker to remotely takeover an affected system.
According to a post on its Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) blog the vulnerabilities (CVE-2014-0500 and CVE-2014-0501) in question affect all versions of Shockwave on Windows and Macintosh machines. The update will graduate version 126.96.36.199 to version 188.8.131.52.
While Adobe notes that it hasn’t discovered any attacks using the vulnerabilities in the wild, it is still encouraging users to update as soon as possible.
