Home Business IT Security Rush update for Flash Player

Despite Adobe's quarterly update cadence, the company has again been forced to deliver an out of cycle update in the face of active exploits of two vulnerabilities. The company has given the Windows and OS X updates its highest priority rating.

Adobe has a policy of releasing security updates on a quarterly basis on a schedule aligned with Microsoft's monthly Patch Tuesday releases. But 'in the wild' exploits of two vulnerabilities have led the company to push out security updates for Flash Player on Windows, OS X, Linux and Android.

The exploits take the form of an email attachment that is a Microsoft Word document containing malicious Flash content, and malicious Flash content on web sites.

Adobe recommends Flash Player users update to the latest version applicable to their operating system.

Versions are tabulated in the security bulletin, along with links to the updated versions.
