Flash On Fire Again

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

Well, once again we are faced with a new critical vulnerability from Adobe Flash player.  This one is for version 10.1.82.76 and earlier, running on Window, Apple’s Macintosh, Linux, Google’s Android and Solaris.

If exploited, the vulnerability crashes the computer, thus opening it up for an attacker to control the computer.  While there have been reports of this exploit in the wild, Adobe states they are not aware of any attacks from this vulnerability at this time.

At the current time there is no fix for this, as Adobe is working on a patch.  Your best solution is to use Mozilla Firefox with scripts disabled, blocking Adobe’s Flash player.
