Critical update for Flash Player plugs exploited vulnerability

By

Adobe has released a security update for Flash Player to plug a vulnerability that is being actively exploited against Windows users.

Adobe Flash Player version 11.2.202.235 has been released in response to the discovery of a vulnerability in the widely used software. While the vulnerability exists in Flash Player for all platforms, it is currently being exploited only via Internet Explorer (Windows).

The exploit is being used against selected targets, and is being delivered as an attachment to email messages.

The vulnerability has also been addressed in Flash Player 10.3.183.19 for Windows, Mac and Linux users who cannot update to version 11, and also in 11.1.115.8 for Android 4 and 11.1.111.9 for Android 3 and earlier.

Adobe recommends all Flash Player users install the relevant update. Updaters are available via the Adobe Flash Player Download Center.

The version of Flash within Google Chrome has already been updated.
