It doesn’t matter if you run Windows, Mac, Linux, Solaris or even Android.. if Adobe goes public about a security vulnerability in its Flash product, you better install the patch to protect against the problem.
Adobe’s emergency patch was issued over the weekend to protect against a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
Targeted attacks could use the vulnerability to trick users into clicking on a malicious link delivered in an email message.
Adobe says that Adobe Flash Player 10.3.181.16 and earlier are vulnerable on Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris operating systems. On Android, Adobe Flash Player 10.3.185.22 and earlier versions are at risk.
You can visit a page on Adobe’s website to determine which version of Adobe Flash you are running.
More information can be found in Adobe’s security bulletin APSB11-13.
