Earlier this month we learned that quite a few of Adobe’s products come bearing an unwelcome gift, no matter which OS you use. A critical vulnerability that is already being used in attacks. The vulnerability would allow specially crafted pdfs and flash content to either crash your computer or in some cases allow an attacker to take control of your system. Adobe has bumped up their patching schedule and will now release a fix for this next Wednesday and have already dealt with the flash vulnerability with the release of the new Flash Player. Take The Inquirer’s advice and update as soon as the patches are released.
