Emergency Adobe Flash update – do it now Featured


We all know that Adobe’s Flash Player is one of the most vulnerable programs that hackers try to exploit. It has issued a patch that addresses 21 critical vulnerabilities.

Adobe defines critical as a vulnerability, which, if exploited would allow malicious native-code to execute, potentially without a user being aware.

In short if you don’t have version then you are less secure. More details are here.

Microsoft rates the vulnerabilities as critical, affecting 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, and Windows 10. The patch should come down via Windows update shortly.

The vulnerabilities affect a raft of versions on Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, Linux and more.
