QUICK HIT: Adobe Issues Flash Patch
The latest Flash vulnerability has been fixed according to a security bulletin from Adobe.
Reports emerged late last week that Flash on Windows, Mac and Linux all had a critical vulnerability that could cause a crash and potentially allow attackers to take control of affected systems - the worst of all security vulnerabilities.
Users of Flash Player 11.2.x or later for Windows, or Flash Player 11.3.x or later for Macintosh, who have selected the option to 'Allow Adobe to install updates' will receive the update automatically. Users who do not have the 'Allow Adobe to install updates' option enabled can install the update via the update mechanism within the product when prompted.
