Adobe Flash Vulnerability Fix

Adobe has released a patch for the latest Flash vulnerability. Adobe Flash is used by the majority of browsers to display dynamic content on web pages. This vulnerability can potentially lead to automatic keylogger downloads by visiting a web site that has a specially crafted flash file embedded in its pages. This is known as a 'drive-by download' - one in which malware can be downloaded and installed without you knowing.

While I am yet to see this specific vulnerability exploited, it is only a matter of time before it is. I have seen previous Flash vulnerabilities exploited to download keyloggers from popular WoW fan sites.

So - play it safe - visit the official Adobe Flash download site and update your flash player.
