Adobe Flash Vulnerabilities

Blog Post

Adobe's weekly Tuesday updates fixed 13 vulnerabilities in its popular Flash software.

Adobe's Tuesday Updates were pretty small this week and focused on Flash, or more specifically, the Adobe Flash Player for Windows, Mac and Linux.  Adobe said that vulnerabilities in this patch could be exploited by hackers to take control of unpatched systems.  It also fixes some issues with memory leak.

Specifically, the updates fix issue with Adobe AIR Desktop Runtime, Adobe AIR Android, Adobe AIR SDK and SDK & Compiler, Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Flash Player Extended Support

Bigger updates are scheduled for Adobe Flash Player in August.  Adobe suggests that users of its software accept automatic updates for Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader as well.
